spelthouse cookies

as you may have gathered from my previous posts, i'm not a big fan of super duper whole grain foods. don't get me wrong, i like to eat (mostly) healthy foods, but i just don't think that everything needs to be made with 100% whole grains.

take chocolate chip cookies, for example. sometimes it is best not to muck around (too much)with a classic.

spelthouse cookies (very slightly adapted from the tollhouse classic)

2 1/4 cups white spelt flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (corn-free)
2 eggs
2 cups chocolate chips

preheat oven to 375

beat softened butter, both sugars and the vanilla in a medium bowl until creamy.

add the eggs and beat until well incorporated.

add the spelt flour, baking soda and salt. stir to combine.

stir in the chocolate chips.

using a small scoop or spoon, portion out roughly 12 cookies per baking sheet.

bake for 8-11 minutes.

place on cooling rack until you can't stand it anymore and must have a cookie!!  (ahem)

makes roughly 60 cookies.
