Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

My husband’s been home 3 full weeks now with the government shutdown.  I’m not going to get all political in here, don’t worry.  These aren’t even political cookies.  Promise.  But with him home, he’s been able to do a lot more of the errands/running around with the kids stuff, and I’ve found that a few times, I’ve had some spare time.  His absolute FAVORITE treat is chocolate chip cookies, and with his birthday coming up on Friday of this week, I decided I’d make this sea salt chocolate chip cookie recipe.
