French bakers have always known that a whisper of salt brings out the very best in dark, rich chocolate. This decadent little cookie is a riff on the fleur de sel double chocolate cookies created by my most favorite bakery in Toronto – Bobbette and Belle.
It has a quiet, unassuming almost old-fashioned appearance that ends with the first delicious, crumbly addictive bite. This is not your mother’s chocolate cookies! It reminds one a rich short bread cookie. The first nibble of double layers of chocolate and the exquisite drift of sea salt takes you to the moon and back.
This superb cookie benefits from baking a day or so in advance of serving. The chocolate flavour intensifies as it rests quietly in the cookie jar. It’s unique salty sweet flavour is the perfect ending for any dinner party especially when you add a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream.
