Whole Wheat, Pecan & Chocolate Chip Cookies
(Makes about 2 dozen cookies)
You will need:
1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
1 stick unsalted butter (1/2 cup), softened
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 large brown egg
3/4 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecan nuts
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheet with foil.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. In a medium bowl, mix butter, vanilla, granulated sugar and brown sugar with an electric mixer until creamy, about 2 minutes. Add the egg and mix until well blended. With the mixer on low, add the flour mixture, scraping the sides with a wooden spoon, and mix until combined. With a wooden spoon, fold in chocolate chips and pecan nuts.
3. Divide the cookie dough between the baking sheets to form two dozen cookie dough balls. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until a rich golden brown (the flour will make the cookies slightly darker than if made with all purpose flour). Remove from oven, let harden slightly, peel them off the foil and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
