   Salted Chocolate Chunk Shortbread cookies submitted by Mom Johnson
The ultimate shortbread cookie.....good thing this recipe makes only a few cookies..... because I'd eat them all!

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Beat the butter, both sugars and vanilla on medium-high speed until light and fluffy; 3-5 minutes. Slowly add the flour followed by chocolate chunks and mix just to blend.

Divide the dough in half placing each half onto a large piece of plastic wrap. Rolling with your hands, form the dough into a log shape about 6 inches long and 2 inches in diameter. Chill until totally firm, about 2 hours.

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Unwrap the dough and brush the outside edges with the beaten egg. Roll in demerara sugar.
Using a serrated knife, carefully slice each log into 1/2 inch thick round slices. Place them on the prepared cookie sheets about 1 inch apart and sprinkle with flaky sea salt. Bake until the edges are just beginning to brown....about 12-15 minutes. Let cool slightly before you gobble them all up!

Makes 20-24 cookies.
