So we made these from The Ambitious Kitchen.
They were originally made with sea salt sprinkled on the tops of them, but I haven't totally gotten into the sea salt craze yet. I like it sometimes, but I figured with this being my first time baking these, I'd try them without first.
I read through the comments while the cookies were in the oven (a habit that I have....I really need to start reading them before I make the recipes?). A lot of people claimed theirs didn't turn out, or weren't like they were in the pictures. I'm not really sure why. I mean, mine weren't perfect and photo-ee but I'm pretty sure they turned out how they were intended! Don't let the initial gooeyness fool you. After they'd sat out for about 30 minutes or so they firmed up into that nice cookie texture you always want. But they're still really fudgy, not chewy like a regular cookie. It's really interesting! And I really like them! My kids pretty much loved the entire process....
But they definitely loved the cookies for sure!

- 2 T brown sugar
- 1 egg
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Mix ingredients all together
- Freeze dough for 10 minutes
