Wookie Cookies

Wookie cookies

Usually, the Secret Recipe Club takes a break in December for the holidays. But this year, we did a cookie swap instead! We were paired with other members from all four groups who opted in to this fun exchange. This month, I was assigned to Debbi Does Dinner Healthy, written by Debbi of course. Debbi is a group C SRC member who just as her blog title says, is determined to make healthy, low-calorie meals without compromising any taste. I chose to make these Wookie cookies, because how can you pass on a name like that?! They are like an amped up chocolate chip cookie, with two different types of chocolate, plus a dash of cinnamon to give it a whole new dimension of flavor. I loved these cookies! In fact, I only baked up a few, and the rest of the dough is in my freezer for whenever the urge strikes! While this month was all about cookies, I did take a peek around some other recipes on Debbi’s blog too. She has quite the arsenal of delicious sounding recipes, such as Summer Squash Casserole, Sweet and Spicy Chicken with Broccoli, and French Onion Risotto! We may have had to make cookies this time, but I will most definitely be back to make some of your delicious recipes, Debbi! 

2 1/4 cups Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 cup Butter, at room temperature
1 cup Brown Sugar, packed
1/2 cup Sugar
2 Eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
1 cup Milk Chocolate Chips
1 cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; set aside. In another bowl, cream the butter, brown sugar, and sugar with a mixer until light and fluffy. Mix in the eggs and vanilla. Slowly add the flour mixture until fully incorporated. Stir in both types of chocolate chips. Drop the dough by rounded tablespoons onto a baking sheet about 1-inch apart. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Makes 3 dozen.
