What is the perfect activity for a cloudy Hurricane Sally watch day.....
....making Seek Lavender & Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies!!!
3/4 cup Unsalted Butter, at room temperature, 1.5 sticks (from your local creamery)
3/4 cup Light Brown Sugar, packed
1/4 cup Seek Lavender Granulated Sugar
1 Egg, at room temperature (from your local egg farmer)
2 tsp Seek Lavender extract
2 cups All-Purpose Flour
2 tsp Cornstarch
1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 cups Semi-Sweet
Course Sea Salt, for sprinkling
In a large bowl with hand mixer or in stand mixer with paddle attachment, beat the butter, brown sugar, and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
Beat in the egg and lavender extract. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, salt and lavender. Add to the wet ingredients, and beat on low until combined.
Add in the chocolate chips and mix to combine evenly.
Cover dough with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour and up to 2 days.
Remove cookie dough from the refrigerator and allow to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
Roll dough into about 1" balls using your hands. Space about 2" apart on the baking sheets.
Bake for 12-14 minutes, until lightly golden brown around the edges. Immediately sprinkle with sea salt once removed from oven before cooling.
Cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.
NOTES *Cookies stay fresh covered at room temperature or stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week
