  1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper, and set aside.

  2. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat butter and sugars together until pale and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla extract and beat for 1 minute.

  3. Whisk together flour, baking soda and regular salt in medium bowl. Add dry mixture to wet mixture, and beat on low speed until just incorporated. Mix in dark chocolate pieces.

  4. Drop tablespoon-sized scoops of cookie dough onto prepared baking sheets, leaving about 2 inches of room between cookies. Sprinkle generously with Cherrywood Smoked Sea Salt.

  5. Bake cookies until just golden brown, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool on pan for 5 minutes.

  6. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
