The Anti-Chicken Fingers Movement ~ Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip CookiesI know we generally stick to actual meals for our Anti-Chicken Fingers Movement, but I think it's nice to throw an appetizer or a dessert in there once in awhile to spice things up!  These are the absolute best chocolate chip cookies I've ever had or made, stolen directly from Betty Crocker herself. I tell myself they are slightly healthier because they are made with whole wheat flour.  If you are going for lower cal, you can even substitute the butter for margarine.  Either way, they are delicious!

cup granulated sugar
cup packed brown sugar
cup butter or margarine, softened
teaspoon vanilla
cups Gold Medal® whole wheat flour
teaspoon baking soda
teaspoon salt
package dark chocolate chocolate chips (2 cups)

  1. Heat oven to 375ºF.
  2. 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.
  3. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown (centers will be soft). Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.
Makes 3 dozen cookies
