  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 extra-large eggs
  • 1 cup light brown sugar (128g)

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Now, let’s get to the important part of how to bake the cookies…

Make Ina’s salted chocolate chip cookies

Firstly, ensure that your oven is preheated to 350F (180 Degrees Celcius) as per Food Network.

  • Next, in the bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar and mix into a creamy paste.
  • Add the vanilla extract and the eggs and mix well.
  • In a new bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • Then, slowly add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture.
  • Fold in the walnuts and chocolate chunks.
  • Using a spoon or an ice-cream scoop, drop the dough on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
  • With dampened hands, flatten the dough slightly.
  • Bake for 15 minutes (the cookies will seem underdone).
  • Remove from the oven, sprinkle with sea salt, and allow to cool slightly on the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
