Sourdough Chocolate Chip Cookies
You will want to eat every last one of these sourdough chocolate chip cookies! I made a batch and over indulged myself. However if you have self control more power to you. Delicious is all I can say!!
For added health benefit place the raw dough in the refrigerator overnight to reduce the gluten content, thanks to the sourdough.
14 ounces large dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup halved walnuts
2 3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 sticks of unsalted butter, slightly softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 to 1/2 cup sourdough starter
1 large egg
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Cream together butter and sugar, then add the egg into the mixture, stir.
Add in the sourdough starter and vanilla extract to the butter mixture.
In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
Mix the wet and dry ingredients. (Careful not to over-mix!) Incorporate the chocolate chips.
Allow the dough to rest for 15 minutes or placed in the refrigerator overnight for an added benefit.
Shape the dough into small balls (2 tsp. per cookie). Flatten and place on a cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes.
