When I think of the word ‘signature’, I think of a defining characteristic and for me, that is my food. Specifically, chocolate chip cookies. My mother is very into cookies, and I think I’ve challenged her with a recipe that I’ve gotten pretty good at (Don’t tell her- cookies are her signature, too). Mine involves chocolate chunks and flaky sea salt- all of the good stuff. There are things that make both of our recipes different, but we put our own ‘signatures’ on each of our cookies.
Like cookies, Hallmark’s line of Signature Style Cards are a great way to put an extraordinary stamp on the everyday. The cards are bedazzled, hand-sewn, and use different papers and materials, each make for a fun spin on card-worthy occasions. I’ve sent a few of these to my mom, and the Signature line itself is just a reminder of how special she is to me. Head over to my Instagram page for a chance to win a few cards to send to your mom! Or a sister or friends or anybody else who deserves a special signature to their day. Bring along my Salted Chocolate Chunk Cookies for an even more exceptional treat! Recipe can be found below.

- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chunks
- Flaky sea salt (such as Maldon)
- Beat sugar and butter together on high for 5 minutes, or until a pale, fluffy consistency. Add vanilla and eggs and mix until combined.
- Scoop by scoop, add flour and baking soda. When the mixture is on the verge of incorporating, throw in the chocolate chunks to finish off the batter.
- Chill dough for at least 1 hour, or up to 12 hours. Preheat your oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll 2 tablespoons of dough into balls and arrange on baking sheet. Sprinkle with small amount of flaky sea salt on top.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until golden. Underbake for a chewier cookie and add 1 minute for a crisper texture.
