delicious cookies!

Mercy be.

I love, love, love these cookies.

I got the recipe from my neighbor, Carla, who got
it from her friend, Pam.

And now I am passing it onto you.
See how that works?
It's what keep the planet spinning.
Not really.

Wheat and Barley Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 1/4 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
(I used freshly milled spring hard white)
1 1/4 Cup Barley Flour
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Baking Soda
Set aside.

Cream Together:
3/4 Cup Butter
(I used 1/4 cup butter, 1/2 cup shortening)

1 Cup Brown Sugar

1 1/2 tsp. Real Vanilla Extract
2 Eggs
Beat well.

Gradually add flour mixture.

Stir in 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips.

Drop by rounded tablespoons onto cookie sheet.
Bake at 400 degrees for 9-10 minutes.

Oh my.

They are so delicious.

And about the butter/shortening.
The original recipe calls for all butter.
But look,
I grew up in the 70's when butter became taboo.
I loves me some margarine.
And shortening.
I know, I know.
Don't scorn me.
I'm trying to change my ways.
I just don't like the flavor of all butter in my cookies.
Plus, shortening makes cookies more fluffy.
I loves me some fluffy.
But by all means, use what you like.
End of story.
