Rating: 3.8 This is an easy sort of crispy, salty chocolate chip recipe. It was a bit too salty for me. It wasn´t easy to cut when it came out of the oven, so I waited 15 minutes, cut it, and then waited 15 minutes more for the mixture to solidify. The mixture doesn´t rise at all, it doesn´t even brown. However, my family loved it so I´ll probably make this again.
