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. . she lists pancake syrup. . .I add Rogers Golden Cane Syrup.

1 cup soft butter
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2. . . (I use 3) tablespoons syrup
2 farm fresh eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups of all purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups chocolate chip cookies

Mix ingredients in given order. . .you know .. cream the butter, add the sugars and then the egg, vanilla and then the dry ingredients.

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.

Bake about 9 minutes. . .the recipe says 7 but I make my cookies bigger. .

Bake at 375 F. Make sure you oven is preheated really well, it will bake the cookies more even.

I often bake mine at 350 convection.

Enjoy. . no kidding. . my beloved just called from the barn and he's on his way in for coffee. . .


  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!
