    Mystia's Note:

    A friend gave me a recipe for lactation cookies but I can devour those things like they're water, so I wanted to make them a tad bit healthier to ease the guilt. :) One note is that if you are using table salt, reduce the salt to 1 teaspoon! I love the way sea salt adds a little more crunch and depth to these cookies. So satisfying. Enjoy!

      In a few batches, add dry ingredients in medium bowl to the butter/sugar mixture in the large bowl. Mix thoroughly (you may have to switch to a wooden spoon during this step, as the dough gets thick!).

    7. 7
      Scoop dough onto cookie sheet with space between the cookies.
