Vange's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Every Cookbook should have a Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe. I was whipping these up this afternoon for our coffee break and took a few pictures. 

I found this recipe in a church cookbook and it was contributed by Vange. Our family has been hooked on these cookies since 1992. We love them. . . so simple always soft and chewy. The different addition is the syrup.

  • 1 cup soft butter
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons syrup  (golden cane syrup or pancake syrup)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chip cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Cream the butter, add the sugars and then the egg, vanilla and then the dry ingredients.
  3. Use an ice cream scoop that has a scraper in it to make balls of dough. No need to flatten, the butter helps with that.
  4. Bake about  7-9 minutes depending on the size of the cookie.  


  1. Well, chocolate chip cookies could come in sixteen different varieties and I would have to try them all. These are a very necessary staple in our home....yep...every good cookbook must have a 'never fail' chocolate chip recipe. Thx for the contribution Lovella.

  2. i agree with trish..never too many chocolate chip cookie recipes....ever. even though packing school lunches is over there is always snack time. i am gonna try these.

  3. Those look perfect and scrumptious!

  4. We've enjoyed these same cookies! I still remember the first time I had them, because someone who didn't attend our church had made them, and when I asked for the recipe she told me that it was in my church recipe book.

  5. I'm honored. And yes, they are addictive.

  6. With a name like Vange, of course they are good......

  7. it took me how many years to try these.....i am sorry i waited to good!
