- 1 ½ c. softened butter (3 sticks)
- ½ c. oil
- 1 ½ c. white sugar
- 1 ½ c. sucanat
Add one at a time:
- 5 eggs
- 1 T. vanilla extract
- 1 t. lemon extract
- 3 c wheat flour
- 1 c white flour
- 1 t. salt
- 2 T. baking soda
- 1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips.
- 1 c. chopped almonds, pecans or walnuts (optional)
- Add 2- 3 c. white flour slowly, kneading in until dough is more stiff (like bread dough) and the chips just begin to fall out as you knead
Shape into balls and flatten slightly to form disks.
Bake at 350. Golf-ball sized balls about 10 minutes. Quarter sized balls about 8 minutes.
Remove from oven before they begin to brown and allow to cool 5 minutes on the sheet.
Cool completely before storing.
I don't recommend doubling unless you have a large capacity mixer.
