Lighter Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are a lower fat and lower sugar version of a chocolate chip cookie.  It uses half the amount of butter and half of the flour is whole wheat.  It also uses less sugar.  But, they still have good flavor.  
Ingredients
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg plus 1 egg white
2 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 Tbsp. hot water
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions
Preheat oven to 350.  Cream butter and both sugars together.   Add in egg,egg white and vanilla extract and mix well.  Dissolve baking soda and salt in 1 Tbsp. hot water.  Add to butter, sugar and egg mixture.  Mix well.  Add flours and mix well.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet or stone.  Bake 9-10 minutes in preheated oven.  I used a regular size cookie scoop and got 35 cookies with this recipe.  These cookies don't spread out the way a full-fat cookie does since the butter is cut in half.  But, they are still yummy!
