Chocolate Chip Cookies

Elias and I made cookies the other day! We make "Beka's Chocolate-Chip Cookies" found on the No Greater Joy website. They are just the absolute BEST!!! Seriously, you are missing out if you haven't tasted these!!! :)

Beka’s Chocolate-chip Cookies
(makes 48-52 large cookies)

Cream together:
1 ½ cup softened butter
½ cup oil
1 ½ cup white sugar
1 ½ cup brown sugar
Add one at a time:
5 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon extract

(Should look like the picture above at this point).

Stir in:
2 level Tbsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups wheat flour
2 cups white flour

Knead in:
12 -16 oz. package Semi-sweet Chocolate chips (depending on how many chips you like)
1c chopped almonds, pecans, or walnuts (if you like). Personally, I do NOT like!

Add more white flour, kneading it in until the dough is stiff like bread dough, and the chips just begin to fall out as you knead.

Shape into golf-ball size balls, flatten slightly between palms, and lay the thick disks on a cookie sheet to bake about 10 minutes at 350 degrees. 

Remove from oven before they begin to brown. Cool on the sheet for about 5 minutes before removing. Cool completely on flat surface before storing them in an airtight container (zip-lock type bags by the dozen or 2 dozen)

Let me know if you try them and what you thought! What is your favorite cookie recipe???
