#6 Buckwheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Developed on August 26, 2009

Wet ingredients:

•2 sticks softened salted butter (I prefer Braums butter.)
•1 Cup Dark Brown Sugar packed firmly
•1/4 Cup Turbinado Sugar
•1 Tablespoon Vanilla
•2 large eggs
•2 Tablespoons Vanilla Silk Soy Milk
(I have developed intestinal cramping and it's possible it's from using soy. I have changed to Almond Milk. I haven't tried the Almond Milk in this recipe but can't see why it would make a difference in the texture of the cookie. If your not allergic to cows milk then use it instead if you wish.)

Combine the sugars, butter, vanilla, eggs, and milk in a large mixer and beat until smooth & creamy. Beat on medium speed. Scrape sides of the bowl & beaters.

Dry ingredients:
Sift together
•1/2 Cup Stone Ground Whole Wheat Flour
•1/2 Cup Buckwheat Flour
•1 Cup Organic Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
•1/2 teaspoon sea salt
•1 teaspoon baking soda

Sift together and add 1/4 cup flour mixture at a time to the butter and sugar mixture. Mix well after each addition and scrape the bowl and beaters after each addition.

•Add 12 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips or Hershey's Dark Chocolate Chips. I like the Hershey's Dark Chocolate Chips the best. They melt better, have a richer flavor and are healthier for you. If you want to be healthier you might use a chocolate that has 60% or more cocoa. If you use a dark chocolate baking bar you need to break the bar into small pieces before adding it to the mixture.

•Add 1/2 Cup chopped pecans or walnuts.

Bake at 375° for about 9 minutes.
