Yummy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I'm finally back in my kitchen, and so happy to be there. We haven't eaten dinner out hardly at all the last couple of weeks, and I'm thrilled about it. This afternoon, the kidlet and I decided we wanted some chocolate chip cookies. It's been so long since I last made cookies, I had to search out a recipe.

And, this one didn't fail me. King Arthur Flour always has wonderful recipes, and I liked that this one used wheat flour. (Almost cancels out the butter, oil, sugar, and chocolate chips. Almost.) I like crunchy cookies (I know - the horror!), so this was right up my alley.

Adapted from King Arthur Flour

1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp cider vinegar
1 large egg
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 cups white whole wheat flour
2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and line baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, beat together the butter, oil, sugars, vanilla, and salt until smooth. Add in vinegar, egg, baking powder, and baking soda and beat until combined. Stir in the flour and chocolate chips until combined.

Drop the dough, by tablespoonfuls, onto the baking sheet. Bake for 15-17 minutes, until the cookies are an even golden brown. When done, remove from oven, and let sit for 5 minutes before removing to racks to cool.
