Salted butter in my cookies

I'm out of unsalted butter and I have some cookies I promised to bring to a friend half prepped. The recipe calls for additional salt so maybe i could leave it out and go with salted butter. They are chocolate chip and I don't mind a bit of salt in my cookie. Will it work?

I wouldn't worry about it. Like Mr_Vittles said.

Honestly, I use salted butter in my cookies all the time. You have the right idea, just add a bit less salt, if anything the extra hit of salt will make them better.
