Chocolate Chip Cookies

New recipe for me:

Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 stick of butter, softened
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons agave syrup
1 egg (room temperature)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon crushed flax seeds
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1 tablespoon coffee flavored liquor (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Cream butter, sugars and agave syrup.  Add egg and vanilla and mix.  Slowly add flours, b. powder, b. soda, salt and seeds. Stir in chips and walnuts.

Place on parchment lined baking sheets and bake for 11-13 minutes.  Makes 1 1/2 dozen.


You may wish to bake a few for eating and freeze the rest by rolling the dough in parchment.  Cover with aluminum foil.  Then you can slice off a few and bake them off when you have a cookie deficiency. 

I made four cookies for J and me.  I ate one.  This is what is left.  Guess someone was hungry!
