Best Baking Day ~ 2/19/09

Last week Afton chose chocolate chip cookies as her BBD food. So, that is what we made today.

Is it ok to admit that I don't like chocolate chip cookies made with whole wheat flour? Is that bad?
I tried. Really I did. I just love the way they taste when I make them with white flour.

I know it's not as healthy, but are cookies seriously supposed to be healthy? Can I justify it that way? Yes? Good! Next time it's white flour all the way *gasp*

The kids don't care either way, but I know Mike does and I have to agree with him on this one.
Needless to say, I forgot to include the flour in my picture. Just pretend you see it, ok?

The ingredients

The dough

The cookies. Afton did this tray all by herself.
Well, almost. I directed and neatened them up a bit.

The finished product.

See? Told you the kids don't care.
Caleb is drooling and Afton is wearing chocolate on her nose :)

So, when hubby comes home he'll have dinner, dessert and family to greet him!

Oh, and dinner is this yummy number from Taste of Home. I just love the crockpot.

Happy Best Baking Day!

I'm with you - white flour for cookies all the way!

Oh, Steph. I substitue half of the white flour with whole wheat flour when I am baking muffins and bread. And I NEVER buy white bread at the store.
But for the cookies??? Only white flour for me. Cookies are NOT meant to be healthy.
Well, there is that one recipe I love which has shredded zuchinni in it. I figure five cookies could count as a serving of vegetables! LOL
