A New Kind of Cookie

I like chocolate chip cookies. While I don’t have an enormous sweet tooth, I do like making and eating (1 or 2) chocolate chip cookies. I saw this recipe at Joy the Baker and then saw this one at Pioneer Woman. By the way, if you haven’t found The Pioneer Woman yet do go and see what you’re missing. She’s a hilarious read, I’m wasting waaay too much time there reading her backlog of posts.

Anyway, I’d already printed out Joy’s recipe and I was feeling rather lazy and didn’t want to make the effort to print out PW’s recipe, so I combined them. Go me! Look at that solution making skills. My mother would be so proud. I liked that Joy’s recipe was whole wheat, since I have a whole bag of whole wheat flour I kept that. And then I liked that PW had some flax seed. She uses whole flax seed that’s been beaten with a rolling pin. I had ground flax seed so I threw some in.

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies
adapted from PW and Joy the Baker
2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp ground flax seed
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup regular sugar
1 cup (two sticks) unsalted butter, softened
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Combine flour, salt, baking soda, and ground flax seed in a bowl, whisk it together then set aside.
Combine packed brown sugar, regular sugar, and unsalted butter in a bowl and mix until creamy, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add in vanilla extract, then add eggs one at a time mixing thoroughly after each addition. Add the dry ingredients in about three stages. Mix in chocolate chips.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and drop cookie dough on the parchment paper. I used a 70 disher (looks like a melon baller…about 2.75 teaspoons). You can fit about a dozen per cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
I got about 5-6 dozen cookies. The count is kinda sketchy since I ate some right out of the oven and my dad kept stealing the dough. Doh!
