Chocolate Chip Cookies

Try these cookies using whole wheat pastry flour. They are DELICIOUS!!

Chocolate Chip Cookies
(I make a double batch- they freeze well)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 pkg (about 6 oz) chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts (opt)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream sugars and butter. Blend in egg and vanilla. Mix in whole wheat pastry flour, baking soda and salt. Carefully mix in chips and nuts, if desired. Drop by rounded teaspoonful about 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.

Tip: When making cookies it is always a good idea to make a test cookie. Bake one cookie. If it spreads too much, add 1-2 TB all-purpose flour to the dough. If it is too dry, add 1-2 TB of milk to the dough. Liquid proportions are affected by egg size and dryness of the flour.
