As I've mentioned previously, Friday at work means Cookie Friday. Now, it doesn't always involve cookies, but I figured that a nice solid chocolate chunk cookie would be an excellent thing to bring for my third Friday in. I developed this recipe by adapting one from the back of a bag of generic grocery store chocolate chips; then I of course added my own touches. I can't help it.
- 4 tsp. ground flax seed
- 4 tbsp. warm water
- 1 1/3 cups margarine, softened
- 1 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1 cup light brown sugar, loosely packed
- 2 cups white flour
- 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 tsp. cinnamon (yup, really.)
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 3/4 tsp. salt
- 8 to 12 oz. chocolate chips or chunks
Makes three dozen cookies. Don't try to eat them all yourself - trust me on this one. Instead share them with friends and loved ones, who will suddenly remember that you are the most amazing person on earth.
