SALT BLOCK GLUTEN-FREE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

July 23, 2015

Recently my eldest son Jacob attended his first of cooking classes at my favorite store, Williams-Sonoma. The topic of the class was Cooking with Salt, but I don’t think we were quite ready for what was in store, note the pun. Haha! Instead of the traditional chocolate chip cookies on a baking sheet, they showed the children in the cooking class how to bake them on a Himalayan salt block. This instantly blew my mind as I have had a salt block since December of last year and had only used it for salting meats up to that point. It didn’t take me long, which in mommy years is two weeks, to bust the salt block out and give it a whirl with my gluten-free chocolate chip cookie recipe. I will also note that along with your salt block you should get it’s corresponding salt plate holder to avoid touching or dropping the plate while hot. Whet your palate for your next taste of heaven with this salt block gluten-free chocolate chip cookies recipe.
