Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

I freeze cookie dough balls and baked cookies to thaw on the day of lunches. It keeps them fresh longer and they are just as easy as opening a bag of chips ahoy only healthier with no preservatives. I double this recipe in my Kitchen Aid mixer and carefully mix in the last amount of flour because it is FULL. Just mix it slowly on stir mode at first and then proceed to 1. I also use the stir mode to incorporate the chocolate chips. You may have to hand mix the chips into the bottom part of the dough, but this process is so much easier with a stand mixer rather than a hand mixer. I don’t believe a hand held mixer will handle a double batch. That’s why is imperative to invest in a nice quality stand mixer and the holidays offer the best prices and incentives.

This is a modified version of a Kitchen Aid recipe. It’s a tried and true freezer cookie recipe.

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:

2 sticks of butter, softened

2 eggs

1 cup sugar

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

1 ½ cup unbleached all purpose flour

1 ½ cups white whole wheat flour (we like King Arthur or Eagle Mills)

12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 tsp. vanilla

Cream butter and eggs.  Add dry ingredients and stir until there are no dry patches. Fold in chocolate chips and vanilla.  Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes. Cool one minute and remove from baking sheet and cool on wire racks. You can also freeze baked, cooled cookies in containers or freezer bags.

Freezing:

Freeze dough into 2-3 logs placed on wax paper.  Wrap tightly in foil and label and date. Slice and bake additional 2 minutes when ready.  Allowing dough to rest for 5 minutes allows easier cutting and removal of paper. Or freeze dough balls (I use a 1″ stainless steel scoop) on a chopping board or tray small enough to lay flat in your freezer. Freeze for approximately 1 hour and transfer dough balls to a quart freezer bag. Label bag with baking instructions: Bake 375 12 minutes. No thawing is necessary with this method. It’s easy for children and hubby to make fresh baked cookies.

    I’ve made these twice, Jackie and they really are delicious… Especially with Ghiradelli bittersweet chips. I have to hide them far back in my freezer so I forget about them
