Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies
What You’ll Need:
1 1/2 sticks butter, at room temperature ($1.12 at $.75 per stick)
3/4 cup white sugar ($.19 at $.50/lb)
3/4 cup brown sugar ($.28 at $.75/lb
1 egg ($.12 at $1.49/dozen)
1 tsp. vanilla (I make my own, I’ll show you how in a bit)
2.5 cups whole wheat flour ($1.13 at $.75/lb)
1 tsp baking soda (I really have no idea here, but it’s cheap)
2 cups chocolate chips ($2.29/bag at TJ’s)
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla. Add flour and baking soda and mix just until incorporated…don’t overmix. Finally add chocolate chips (and anything else you want to add…nuts, m&ms, other chips, etc).
I refrigerated the dough maybe 10 minutes before putting them on an ungreased cookie sheet (I used about 2 tablespoons of dough per cookie and they were pretty large) and might actually try doing it for longer next time since they ended up a little flat. Bake 8-10 minutes and let cool before removing from cookie sheet.
