Delicious Rye Sourdough cookies

Lot more sourdough wonders happening in my kitchen as of recent. Bread, pizzas, flat bread and breakfast bakes.

However, I specifically fell in love with this recipe for rye sourdough double chocolate chip cookies out of all my bakes last week. It did so perfectly fit in between two batches of sourdough breads that I baked for my friends.

My sourdough is a stiff starter that sits in refrigerator and is fed once a week before my bake. Rye is my favorite grain to work with, there isn’t any other sourdough that gives such a fine ferment or flavor to the bread. In my bakes I always feed rye starter the day before I plan on baking and leave it on the counter to fermented, when it’s ready and bubbly and pass the float test, I mix in with the rye flour and water to make the rye sour for the bake.

In my experience, rye ferment slowly, but because it doesn’t have gluten to form the structure, it will not rise much. I let mine ferment for 12 to 16 hours depending on the temperature in my kitchen that day. Once the rye has fermented, measure out a cup for the cookies
