Chewy Salted Molasses Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chewy Salted Molasses Chocolate Chip Cookies. Now that was a mouthful, huh? And, if you're lucky, you just might get a mouthful of cookie too. A mouthful of ooey-gooey, robustly sweet, chocolate-studded cookie. Sound pretty good, don't they? Well, let me tell you, they most certainly are.

I have this compulsion. I don't like to publish blog posts with mediocre photos (don't get me wrong, I am fully aware a number of my photos haven't been exactly glorious), but these cookies were just too good not to share. I'm currently in Amsterdam visiting my dad. In rushing out of the house to catch my plane last Friday, I simply forgot to grab my camera. 

This left me snapping photos left and right on my shiny, new toy- my iPhone 5. While it doesn't have quite the same satisfying heft or take nearly as lovely photos as my trusty Nikon, I have to say, it takes pretty decent pictures. So, here is my disclaimer. These photos were taken with Instagram. But Instagram's cool, right?

Chewy Salted Molasses Chocolate Chip Cookies
Adapted from Joy the Baker
Makes about 2 dozen cookies

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon table salt
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 cup butter, melted
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips
Sea salt, for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 350. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. In another small bowl, stir sugar and molasses together until no lumps remain. In the bowl of a food processor, pulse sugar mixture and butter. Add egg and pulse to incorporate. Add egg yolk and vanilla extract and pulse until just combined. Add dry ingredients and pulse until fully incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips. Scoop dough by the heaping tablespoon onto a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes, until golden brown and the tops are dry to the touch. Let cool on a wire rack.
