Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these last night for a dinner with several siblings-in-law and their significant others. A couple of my own findings:

-3-4 tablespoons per half cookie resulted in pre-baked portions the size of tennis balls. Way too big. 3-4 tablespoons total worked much better. Still baked for 13 minutes and they came out great.
� Reserve 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips for pressing into the top. Even if you don�t press them in, 1 1/2 cups is plenty.
-Mine did not spread all that much, and I liberally greased my pan. I might chill for only 20-30 minutes next time and see if that helps.
-The sea salt is everything to these. Use it!
-10 seconds in the microwave after storing them makes them divine.

My guests absolutely loved these and I�m sure I will make them again. Even my usually nit-picky husband couldn�t find anything wrong with them!
