5 Easy Ways to Salt-ify Summer Sweets

Remember when salted caramel was considered a culinary novelty? What about when bacon chocolate chip cookies were avant-garde? With maple bacon cupcakes and salted caramel milkshakes now on the menu, it’s easy to forget that not long ago sprinkling sea salt over anything sweet was a little bit brave.

Star Sugar Cookies
