I love that these cookies don’t taste (or look) like they are made from whole wheat.
I got this recipe from a church class on cooking with whole wheat several years ago. I took them to my book club last night & they disappeared, but the best part was that no one could tell that they were whole wheat!
1 c. shortening
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. white sugar2 beaten eggs
2 T. hot water
1 t. vanilla
1/2 t. salt
1 t. soda
2.5 c. whole wheat flour
6 oz chocolate chips (minimum – add as desired)
1 c. chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts – optional)
1/2 c. coconut (optional)
Cream shortening & sugars.
Add eggs, water & vanilla.
Sift flour, soda, & salt together & add to the creamed mixture.
Add chocolate chips & nuts, then mix.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350* for 15 minutes.
