- 1 tablespoon molasses
- 1 egg
- 1-1/2 cups whole white wheat flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional (I opted no.)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix the wet ingredients in one bowl and the dry in another. Add the dry ingredients to the wet a little at a time stirring together as you go. Divide the dough in half and press into rectangles approximately 15" x 3" on a cookie sheet. I used two cookie sheets because I wasn't sure how much they would spread and while you could get away with one, I'd use two just to make cutting them easier. Once the dough is pressed out, add chocolate chips and press them into the dough. If you are using nuts, do those the same way. Bake 7-8 minutes (the recipe says this make crispier cookies, but I thought they were still plenty soft and at 5 minutes they still looked uncooked to me). Cool 5 minutes then cut with a serrated knife. I used a pizza cutter and I wouldn't recommend it. The first batch cut fine, but by the time I got to the second batch, there was a lot of melted chocolate on the cutter and it tore the sticks up pretty bad. Maybe at some point, I should follow all of the directions. Or, I'll just aspire to be a direction follower!
