I'll start by saying that this review is coming from someone who has been baking with whole wheat flour for many years and knows the good from the not so good. This recipe is outstanding and has now just become my "go to" favorite cookie recipe. I made a half recipe and got a perfect 18 cookies so it's dead on for yield amount. The cookies are wonderful, they came out light, soft and purely delicious. I had to add that I used Splenda regular for the white sugar and 1/4 cup of Splenda Brown Blend for the brown sugar and a heart healthy margarine. Also to help trim the sugars a bit more I used fewer chocolate chips than ask and added in some chopped pecans to make up the volume difference and add the the yum factor (I love nuts). The dough came together perfectly for me and it was so easy to scoop and drop that I had the sheet loaded with the 18 drops in about one min. Mine were baked at 362 degrees (my oven tends to run hot) and were beautifully baked at 9 mins. These are nothing short of total perfection in the cookie world.
I usually don't like to cook/bake with whole wheat flour. I find that it's kind of dry and has an unpleasant texture. I only buy whole wheat bread, etc. but have never really liked using it at home. This recipe showed me that you can make good things with whole wheat flour! These cookies were very easy to make and came out great! I made this exactly as directed, making 15 large cookies. Because of the size, I cooked them for 12 minutes. Make sure to let them sit on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before you move them, so they don't break. Made for Went to the Market tag game. Thanks HokiesLady! :)
This was a very nice cookie but the dough was very dry and hard to work with. My cookies turned out very thin and extremely hard to keep them together. But, saying that the flavor was just excellent. After they sat for a little longer they became less brittle and less likely to fall apart. Thanks Hokies. Made for Photo Swap 8. :)
I found this recipe somewhere else and was going to post it if I didn't find it on Zarr. Some of the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever made! 2 cups of flour may not sound like much but measure carefully - whole wheat flour makes for a whole new ball game (so I found out). Thanks for posting!
I found this recipe on a different site and tried it...OMG this is the best whole wheat cookie ever! They get nice and flat, chewy in the middle and crispy on the outside. They're awesome!
Kind of funny. I was looking for a whole wheat cookie recipe, found this and then as I was making the recipe saw that it was printed on the back of my bag of flour. Very nice flavor, but perhaps didn't rise as much as I would have liked, but still an overall good texture.
Unfortunately, my husband and I did not like the flavor of these cookies. Something was "off." They just didn't have the satisfying texture and taste of traditional chocolate chip cookies. They also didn't rise very well. It very well could have been something I did wrong, rather than the recipe, because I'm not an experienced baker. However, I did use fresh ingredients and followed the recipe carefully.
