BRING A RICH, DARK, SALTY AND SWEET TREAT INTO YOUR KITCHEN . . . DOUBLE CHOCOLATE FLEUR DE SEL COOKIES

 

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.

    • Dear sweet Resa. This is a rewarding recipe. It asks little of you, but gives so much in return. I love that it keeps for TWO WEEKS in a secure cookie tin. One with a padlock, perhaps. It is a good little chocolate soldier of a cookie and the sea salt is the simply most perfect flavour accent. XXOO Virginia
