I Can't Bake, But....

Erica learned how! Well, she produced some successful cookies! At my house we struggle with baking.  She needed to make some cookies for Craig's birthday, and these were in our new Cooking Light Magazine.  

2 tablespoons canola oil
5.6 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1 1/4 cups)
3.3 ounces whole-wheat flour (about 3/4 cup)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 375°.

2. Heat butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; cook 5 minutes or until browned. Remove from heat; add oil. Set aside to cool. (this makes the recipe!! Don't skip this step!)

3. Combine flours, baking powder, and salt, whisk together. Place butter mixture and sugars in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until combined. Add vanilla and eggs; beat until well blended. Add flour mixture, beating at low speed until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

4. Drop a tablespoon full of dough 2 inches apart onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake 12 minutes or until bottoms of cookies just begin to brown. Cool slightly.
