We all know (and love) Citarella's tasty fish and barbecue recipes. But it's also worth checking them out when you're craving something sweet. Case in point: these sea salt chocolate chip cookies.

“This recipe is inspired by the beloved cookies of Chef Carolina, which we sell in the market, ” says Citarella owner Joe Gurrera, who suggests you make it a group effort. “Baking together is a great thing to do when you’re home with kids.” And eating delicious chocolate chip cookies is a great thing to do always.

3) Cream butter and both sugars in bowl until completely combined.
