Rye flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

Lately, I have been seeing many recipes using Millet.  Also, received couple of mails asking to post millet's based recipes.  Once upon a time, millet's were consumed only by poor.  Today, they are expensive than rice and wheat!

From my Son’s social science book, I understand that, one of the reasons for the French Revolution was White Bread. Those days White bread was much expensive than Brown! Now check the price in the nearest bakery.  (Zamana Badal Gaya / உலகம் ஒரு உருண்டை)

Most of the kids do not like to consume millet's directly  (not to blame them).  Also, it’s difficult to bake an edible product with 100% millet. 
Earlier, I used Ragi to make Cookies. Now with Rye. I am pretty sure; Kids can’t even feel the rye flour while eating (thanks to the chocolate) and they ask for more. 

Ingredients:   2 cup of rye flour    ;      1/4 cup of all purpose flour    ;     110 gms of melted butter, at room temp.    ;      2/4 cup of sugar      ;      2/4 cup of brown sugar   ;    2 eggs    ;     1 tsp of vanilla essence   ;     1 ½ cup of chocolate chip    ;      3/4 tsp of baking soda    ;   salt - a pinch

Procedure:  Mix the Rye and AP flours, baking soda and salt keep aside.

In bowl add both the sugars and butter and blend well till sugar dissolved. Add egg, vanilla essence and mix well. Add the flour mixture in to it and combine well.

At last, add the chocolate chips and mix carefully so that, it spread evenly. Using the ice cream scoop, scope the prepared cookies dough on the baking tray in 2’’ apart.

 Transfer the baking tray into the preheated oven for 180°c for 25 min. or till it become brown and crusty. Allow it to cool and store in a air tight container.
