I put on my baking hat this weekend and made classic chocolate chip cookies. They were chewy and moist, just how we like them. B's colleague lost a family member last week so I thought it would be nice to surprise him with some cookies to brighten his day!
1 1/4c whole wheat flour
1t baking powder
1/2c unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2c packed brown sugar
6T white sugar
1t Mexican vanilla
1 1/4c mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In a bowl, mix together flour, baking powder and salt.
Using a mixer, cream together butter and sugars. Add in egg and vanilla. Mix until combined. Slowly add in the dry ingredients then fold in chocolate chips.
Drop heaping tablespoons on to cookie sheets about 2" apart. Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes until edges are lightly browned. Let cool 5 minutes then transfer to wire racks. Store in an airtight container. Or... if the cookies are a gift for someone who likes their cookies frozen, just put the bag in the freezer until delivery!
