I've finally jumped on the sweet and salty bandwagon and made Smitten Kitchen's crispy salted oatmeal white chocolate cookies. Success! I've always been a fan of the sweet and salty combo, but I've only really experienced it on popcorn and chocolate covered caramels. Now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure I had one or two of these cookies too.
Anyway, I'm almost sure that I've never baked any sweet and savory treats in my day, and I learned that I could have been more liberal with the salt. Since these cookies spread out so much, you can afford to add some extra flakes.
Truth be told, I didn't chose these cookies because of their sweet and salty nature. I just needed to whip up a quick recipe after work, and these were the simplest thing I could find. So really, they were successful on two fronts: taste and time. I'm going to make them again.
