Beka's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients

Cream together:

  • 1 ½ c. softened butter
  • ½ c. oil (I use olive)
  • 1 ½ c. white sugar
  • 1 ½ c. sucanat

Add one at a time:

  • 5 eggs
  • 1 T. vanilla
  • 1 t. lemon extract

Stir in:

  • 3 c wheat flour
  • 1 c white flour
  • 1 t. salt
  • 2 t. baking soda

Knead in:

  • 1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  • 1 c. chopped almonds, pecans or walnuts (optional)

Add slowly, kneading in until dough is more stiff (like bread dough) and the chips just begin to fall out as you knead:

  • 2-3 c. white or wheat flour

Instructions

  1. Shape into balls and flatten slightly to form disks.

  2. Bake at 350. Golf-ball sized balls about 10 minutes. Quarter sized balls about 8 minutes.

  3. Remove from oven before they begin to brown and allow to cool 5 minutes on the sheet.

  4. Cool completely before storing.

  5. I don't recommend doubling unless you have a large capacity mixer.
