Part 4 of Catching up: Snow Day

"Snow Day" turned into SNOW DAYS

After the holidays, I got a great treat to visit my cute Nieces in Texas. We had 2 days of freedom of the "Record breaking Snowstorm".I think being cooped up for 4 days I gained my holiday weight eating all the carbs. AAAUGH ! ! !
My Sister-in-law,Lisa and I love to make recipes together.
She's joined the ranks of the blog also. Pretty proud of my lil' Sis,
Check her blog out
But we went a little stir crazy being "Snowed in" for those days. We made Betty Crocker's Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies to start of. See we were being health conscious ... Then. Check out the nutritional data on these. But then again, I got carried away with her LARGE ice cream scooper and made bigger cookies. Lisa named them "softball sized" Check out the pic

Betty Crocker's Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Nothing is more delicious than a warm, chewy chocolate chip cookie. Using whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose makes this a contender for the best-tasting cookie ever!

Prep Time 30 Minutes
Total Time 40 Minutes
Makes 3 dozen

3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 cups Gold Medal® whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips (2 cups)

Heat oven to 375ºF.
Mix sugars, butter, vanilla and egg in large bowl. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt (dough will be stiff). Stir in chocolate chips. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown (centers will be soft). Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.

Did You Know...
The word cookie comes from the Dutch word for cake, "koekje". The first cookies were actually tiny cakes baked as a test to make sure that the oven temperature was right for baking a larger cake.
Feeling a little nutty? Go ahead and add 1 cup coarsely chopped nuts with the chocolate chips.
