8) When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat. Set aside.
9) Scoop 40g balls of dough (supposed to be 99g) onto the baking sheet
10) Sprinkle lightly with sea salt and bake until golden brown but still soft, 16-18 minutes.

99 grams of cookie dough makes for a HUGE COOKIE.
