Last night, we rung in the summer solstice (aka the longest day of the year) in proper Portlandian style. Together with our neighbors and friends, Dan and I enjoyed the long lasting sunshine and the mild temperatures over some great conversation, drinks and of course food. The whole celebration was lovely and so bountiful, as everyone brought a little something for others to enjoy. I decided to go with dessert - making these crunchy chocolate chip sea salt cookies, inspired by NY's famous Momofuku Milk Bar.
Getting the recipe for these from my Luxurious Eats Pinterest board, I was glad to see that they didn't take too long to assemble and there was no need for any sort of special equipment. As is usually the case with yummy things, it's important to use good quality ingredients such as nice semi-sweet chocolate chips or chunks and some delicate sea salt. Actually using something I had on hand from my sister-in-law Diana, I sprinkled some smoked bacon sea salt on top and watched as the cookies quickly disappeared from the serving platter.
