Garlic Chip Cookies

Posted by Jasmine Venditti on

I make these cookies a lot but have to admit I have changed the recipe a bit (some people would say a lot). I’ve given the original recipe so you can be the judge if the changes are necessary for you. Both brown and white sugars are cut to half cups.  Instead of maple syrup I use honey (there’s lots of local honey in our valley so I feel I may as well make good use of it).  Also, I only use ¼ cup of honey to soak the garlic and I do not drain it.  It goes right into the batter because who in their right mind would toss maple syrup (or honey).  Sometimes I add the salt and sometimes not depending on how I feel (don’t ask me why).  Possibly because I usually cut the sugar in recipes??  Last but not least I only add one cup of chocolate chips much to John’s chagrin.  (all recipes and commentary brought to you by Joanne)


10 cloves of garlic
boiling water
175 ml (3/4 cup) brown sugar

175 ml (3/4 cup) sugar
250 ml (1 cup) butter
2 eggs
125 ml (1/2 cup) maple syrup
5 ml (1 tsp) vanilla
625 ml (2 ½ cups) flour
2 ml (½ tsp) salt
5 ml (1 tsp) baking soda
500 ml (2 cups) chocolate chips
125 ml (1/2 cup) chopped nuts
Drop cloves into boiling water for five minutes until tender.  Peel, chop and soak in maple syrup for 20 minutes. Cream butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla together until fluffy.

Combine flour, baking soda and salt.  Add to creamed mixture.  Stir in nuts and chocolate chips.  Drain garlic and add to cookie batter.  Blend well.  Drop batter by tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheet 2” apart.

Bake at 375 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown. Makes approximately four dozen.
