I make these cookies regularly. A crowd pleaser (and the recipe makes cookies for a crowd) indeed! People are always surprised by the sea salt and the way it elevates and intensifies the chocolate. Truly perfection. thank you, JJR!!!

Cookies turned out amazing! First time baking something, so naturally I ended up with one giant cookie on the sheet, but will try again for sure!
