Chocolate Chip Cookies

Nothing makes you feel quite like you're at home like good old fashioned chocolate chip cookies!

yield: 4 dozen

1 1/2 cups white flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
2 egg whites or 1 whole egg
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. Combine flour, baking soda and salt, stirring with a whisk.
3. Combine sugars and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Add vanilla and egg whites; beat 1 minute. Add flour mixture and chips; beat until blended.
4. Drop dough by level tablespoons 2 inches apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on pans for 2 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely.

I just made these for the second time in America and this recipe STINKS! It's wonderful for overseas, but in America DO NOT follow as above. Instead, use 1 cup white flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, or maybe 3/4 of each. 2.5 cups of flour total is way too much. The flour in America is different…more dense…so you don't need as much.
