A New Twist On An Old Favorite

I was in the mood for cookies yesterday and couldn't convince the boy to help me make any. So, I asked him what his favorite kind of cookie is. Despite his quirky personality, he chose the all-time classic, chocolate chip. And despite my best attempt to keep the cupboard stocked with chips at all times, I think the last bag found their way into pancakes, muffins, and cookies. So my stash of chips was way down, but I did dig into the back of the shelf and discover some white chocolate and peanut butter chips, and the "Mixed-Up Chip Cookie" was born! 

Mixed-Up Chip Cookies

1 Cup Butter (2 sticks)
1 Cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 Eggs
2 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Salt
12 ounces mixed chips (milk chocolate, white chocolate, peanut butter)

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla and beat. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt and then add to butter mixture. Sir in chips. Drop by heaping teaspoons onto silicone mat or lightly greased baking sheet. Bake in 375' oven 8-12 minutes. Makes 2 1/2 dozen cookies.

These pictures remind me that I really enjoy taking pictures and that this digital camera doesn't allow for much "photography" beyond point and shoot. Oh to have a nice camera...


  1. isn't your "nice" camera tucked away in the closet somewhere?
