Happy National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day! To celebrate, I'm posting my absolute favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe from The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook by Cheryl and Griffith Day These cookies cater to my tastebuds because they give me my ultimate flavor combo- sweet and salty. A sprinkle of sea salt on top gives them a kick that separates them from the rest. Happy baking!
