Game of Cookies

It's been a while since I've posted, but the 5th season of Game of Thrones deserves some sort of commemorative nod. I've been searching for years for a simple sweet and salty chocolate chip cookie recipe that could overthrow all other recipes and rule over the Seven Kingdoms.

Of course, one never has to look further than Bon Appétit to find greatness.  This classic cookie is both chewy and crispy, sweet and savoury.  Perfect!

So take tonight for yourself.  Pour yourself a glass of wine or crack open a beer.  Leave the drama to the TV set or laptop as you indulge in the world's favourite show.

Salty Chocolate Chip Cookies (based on this BA recipe)


1/2 cup butter, melted

3/4 cup Turbinado sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1/4 cup of powdered sugar

2 egg yolks, 1 whole egg

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1 cup of chocolate chips

a few pinches of kosher salt to sprinkle on top


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.

1- With an electric mixer handy, mix the sugars and butter together for a couple of minutes.  Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well.

2- Pour your dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking powder) into the wet ingredients, mixing little by little until well combined.

3- Fold in your chocolate chips and roll into palm-sized balls.  Flatten a bit with your hands and sprinkle each unbaked cookie with a tiny bit of kosher salt. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edges and bottoms of your cookies are golden.

These cookies taste phenomenal right out of the oven, so tell anyone who wants to wait for them to cool to take a hike.  Royalty waits for no one.
