Inside Edition headed to the kitchen with lifestyle expert Alejandra Ramos to see what all the fuss is about. 

To start, beat cold butter with sugar before adding vanilla extract and flour. 

“It’s gonna look kinda dry and crumbly,” Ramos said. “Resist the urge to add more butter or water or anything, this is what it’s supposed to look like. It will come together.”

When it comes time for chocolate, don’t use chips. Instead, cut up a chocolate bar into little bits. 

“So what’s great it when you chop it yourself you’re gonna get all different sizes, plus you can buy the best chocolate you can get,” said Ramos. 

From there, you roll the mixture into a log and refrigerate it for at least two hours. Then, it is brushed with beaten eggs, rolled in raw, light brown sugar and sliced. 

Before you stick it in the oven, sprinkle some sea salt on the cookies and let it cook for about 15 minutes.
