2 cups Whole Wheat Pastry Flour (I didn't have pastry flour, so I just used plain whole wheat flour)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (we used a mix of chocolate and butterscotch chips)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer cream butter and sugars until mixture is light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; mix until fully incorporated. Add flour mixture, and beat until just combined. Add chocolate chips and just stir in until combined. The dough looks a little dry, but don't worry.

dough into the pan.
I think it would be a great idea to decorate this cookie with some icing, perhaps with a birthday message for a friend.... but we didn't put icing on tonight, it was too close to bedtime and the last thing I needed was to have them pumped full of even more sugar!
As you can see, even though I over baked it a little, it was still enjoyed! Do you have any fun kid-friendly recipes to share? I still have the rest of the March Break to go!!!
