my (first but probably not only) version of Liz‘s basic cookie recipe

    1.5 c. all-purpose flour
    1 c whole wheat flour, some of which looked like pastry flour (I haven’t baked much lately, and I think the batch of flour from the bottom of my whole-wheat jar was pastry flour.)
    1.5 tsp. baking powder
    a smidgen of salt
    2 eggs

    1/4 c. oil
    1/4 c. water
    3/4 c. sugar
    1/2 tsp. vanilla

    plus chocolate chips, dried cranberries, and sliced almonds, not really measured at all

    Preheat oven to 350˚
    Mix dry and wet ingredients in separate bowls, then mix together by “dumping” dry ingredients into wet.
    Drop by rounded teaspoon onto cookie sheets, and bake for 12 minutes, or until golden.  (Mine took about 15′.  I got about 32 cookies, I think, which was a nice quantity to take to fiber night.)

Over all, these were very good.  Next time, though, I will try harder to find normal-sized chocolate chips instead of the giant ghirardelli ones, and I’d probably cut the sugar to 2/3 c.  (I will also try to remember to buy more baking soda at some point–mine got infested by mealmoths, and I keep forgetting to replace it.)
