Chocolate Cookies

While Kramer has been having chemo and radiation, I’ve turned into the cookie maker.  I often make some to leave for the childcare kids for snack when I’m not there.  We often pack a couple and take them with to snack on the way back from treatment.  I’m doing my best to keep Kramer eating as they say it’s really easy for chemo patients to lose weight.

When all of our kids were living at home I didn’t often make cookies.  I made bars instead as the kids ate the cookies WAY to quickly.  That put me out of the habit of making cookies but lately I’ve been on a cookie kick.

As much as I love my Monster Cookies and my Chocolate Chip Cookies, I wanted to make something different.  I pulled out one of my favorite old church cookbooks and saw this recipe.  I saw I had wrote “Good” by it so that was the recipe I made…and they were good.
I followed the recipe exactly and here’s how they looked….

We all liked them and they stayed soft.  We’re soft cookie lovers so I try hard to only make soft cookies.

Kramer said he would have preferred it if I would have used chocolate chips instead…He’s a chocolate lover and the white chips didn’t give him the chocolate punch he loves.

If you try them, let me know what you think…or if you have a good cookie recipe, send it my way.

    Jo, I also love a soft cookie. My trick is, if the recipe says 9-11 minutes, I back it for 10. I have been accused of undertaking my cookies. But, that’s the way I love them. Now, my dad, he liked what we call dunkers. He like them overbaked so he could dunk them in his hot tea. That means instead of baking 11 minutes, I might have baked his for 12 minutes. YUCK!!!

    Thinking of you and your family, Jo. Tomorrow will be a difficult day, I’m sure. Hopefully you can spend it sharing fun memories of Kramer.

    I really like the recipe on the back of Andes Mint pieces..found with the chocolate chips. I use butter right from the fridge and my kitchenaid mixer.

    Thanks for the recipe. I would like any kind of chip in them, but I might try them with peanut butter chips first. Hugs to you and yours.

    I like to take mine out of the oven when they still look kinda raw in the middle. They will bake a little more, and they are nice and chewy, not crispy

    1 cup softened butter

    1 tsp vanilla
    slowly mix in 2 eggs
    then add the flour & soda mixture
    1 bag chocolate chips

    Bake at 375 degrees

    I typed this from memory so that tells you how often I make them, my grandkids actually gave me a plate that says “Grandma Roxie’s famous Chocolate Chip cookies, since 1980” and they have come to expect it full when they visit. We often substitute French vanilla or Chocolate pudding & M & M’s or white chips for the chocolate chips. I’ve even separated the dough & made some of each!

    You are an amazing & strong woman Jo –
