Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

I'm back!  You may have noticed that I've been out of commission for the past week.  Maybe you didn't.  I'm going to pretend like you did to make me feel better :)

We've been busy.  We went to Colorado to look for an apartment, we checked off some more items from our DC Bucket List, and we went to West Virginia to get some climbing and camping in before leaving the East Coast (for good?).

But that's not really an excuse.  I'll make it up to you with cookies.  Cookies fix everything.  And these cookies have a secret.  They're healthy!  Ok not really healthy at all, but they're healthier than normal chocolate chip cookies...so you can eat more!
Recipe adapted from Tollhouse
1 c. whole wheat flour
1 1/4 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 c. vegetable shortening
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/4 c. chocolate chips
1.  Combine dry ingredients.  Set aside.

2.  Beat together shortening and sugars.  Add eggs one at a time.  Add vanilla.  Add dry ingredients.

3.  Stir in chocolate chips.

4.  Bake at 375˚ for 9 minutes.  Cool on a wire rack.
