Everyone is different when it comes to cookies, some like them gooey, some like them crunchy, and some like them cake-like. the texture of your cookies depend on how much butter/oil you use in your batter and how much flour, etc.
My chocolate chip cookies that I’m presenting you today are more on the cake-like side because I don’t even use a whole stick of butter like most recipes do. You don’t need a stick of butter to make something delicious and these ARE delicious cookies.
Lets talk chocolate chips. I urge you to read labels people! You will be surprised on how much junk is in most products and even in something simple as chocolate chips. I use a brand called ENJOY LIFE SEMI SWEET MINI CHOCOLATE CHIPS and they are allergy friendly as in no soy/dairy/peanut. Simple ingredients.
Lets get into the recipe!
6 tbsp butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cup fresh ground hard white wheat
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
8 oz of mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In your mixer ( I use my kitchen-aid) start by mixing together your eggs and sugar on stir setting. Add in your vanilla. Once mixed, add your flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix on low. Now add your melted butter. (Yes, I do this different than most recipes by adding butter last)
Once all of your ingredients are mixed well, put in your chocolate chips and mix on the stir setting until incorporated. On your baking sheet sprayed with oil/butter or lined with parchment paper, use a spoon to scoop out balls and with wet hands, roll them into a ball then flatten them slightly. Place them 2 inches apart. Bake for 14 minutes.
