Brown Sugar Cookies with Chocolate Candy

Every year this time I’m usually a baking machine, but since I’m staying home there’s no where to bring the baked goodies!  I’m also busy playing with my precious baby girl all day.  Another reason is I’m trying to limit my intake of sweets since I’m breastfeeding.  I only want to have food that is good for me, but if I do have sweets I also want them to be somewhat good for me too!  

Thanks to Hodgson Mill Flour I was able to create the perfect cookie that would fulfill my sweet tooth without making a huge batch and by using Whole Wheat Pastry Flour instead of regular.   By adding in some of their Bread flour I was able to achieve a slightly crispy edge, and a chewy delicious cookie.  I really think the combination of the two paired nicely.  I also used their Whole Wheat Flour to make some Hot Chicken Cutlets for my husband.  He didn’t even realize it was Whole Wheat! 
Back to the cookies.  They are incredible.  I had to toss out half of the batter because if I didn’t I would have eaten EVERY single cookie that came out of the oven.  The brown sugar really comes through and shines so much that I didn’t even add vanilla.  Shocking right?  I’m entering these into the Hodgson Mill’s Have a GRAIN Holiday Recipe Contest!  I hope you try them and if you do please let me know what you think!  Also like everything I do.. it ALL goes into the same bowl, no prepping aside from creaming the butter and sugars!
