Instructions Checklist
  • Cream butter, Diamond Crystal® Kosher Salt and dark brown sugar in a bowl for 5 minutes with an electric mixer on high speed. Add flour and mix on low speed until just combined.

  • Remove dough from parchment and roll in demerara sugar to coat. Slice into rounds 1/4 inch thick and place on cookie sheets.

  • Sprinkle each cookie with additional demerara sugar and a pinch of Diamond Crystal® Coarse Sea Salt.

  • Bake until very lightly browned and firm to the touch, about 8 to 10 minutes.
