Just to share my current love of salty sweet treats, here are two great cookie recipes to try. They are both from the NY Times. The first is a salted tahini chocolate chip cookie. The tahini paste adds a subtle, almost elusive, nuance to the cookie and for the chocolate I used a combination of bittersweet and semisweet chunks. A sprinkle of kosher salt as soon as the cookies come out of the oven adds the right finishing touch.
The second is a Salty Peanut Butter Sandie. If you love peanut butter, you will love this cookie. Made with all natural, unsalted peanut butter, it is then mixed with brown sugar and crunchy salt for a deep satisfying flavor. The top is sprinkled with Maldon sea salt and turbinado sugar. Addictive, to say the least.
These are both worth trying. Enjoy!
