It's a Salty Subject


I'm very new to baking so I have a lot to learn... exploring and trying some new recipes are fun, but one lesson to remember is do not put too much salt in the cookie batter! Yes. Salt to some symbolize purity, perfection, wisdom, hospitality, durability, and fidelity, but when it comes to sea salts which have an incredible flavor composition follow the direction and even use less! It is vital to great cooking, but when you over do it with salt you ruin the cookie on the first bite. Trust me when telling you the most valuable lesson I had ever learned on TV was during a FULL HOUSE episode in the 80s when Becky said, "less is more" and that applies to much more than baking...
