Recipe for Five-Chip Cookies on Food Friday

What's Your Favorite Kind of Cookie?

Everyone loves cookies!  At least in our family.  My husband and son love to eat them as a snack, and to take them in their lunches.  Recipes for cookies are at the top of my daughter's list when on the lookout for a new recipe to try.  Because baking releases tension when she's feeling under a lot of pressure and cookies are quick to whip up, she will bake up a batch whenever she has a few minutes to spare.  If we visit my mom and she doesn't have any cookies in the cookie jar, she apologizes.  Eating a cookie doesn't seem to break your diet as badly as some other desserts, at least that's what I think! Maybe that's why even healthy eaters will usually take one when offered.  Just a few of the reasons why there will never be too many cookie recipes!


Five-Chip Cookies is a new recipe for us.  Of course, my daughter Kelsey tweaked the recipe a little, using only 3 kinds of chips (semisweet chocolate, white baking chips and butterscotch),  and adding extra oatmeal, and pecans.  They seemed perfect to us with only 3 kinds of chips.


The aroma of these cookies baking called us one-by-one to the kitchen!  We couldn't wait to try them, eating them hot from the oven, and promptly pronouncing them "the best"!


Recipe for Five-Chip Cookies
Makes: 4-1/2 dozen
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup each milk chocolate chips, semisweet chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, white baking chips and butterscotch chips.
Directions:
  • In a large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars until light and fluffy.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Beat in vanilla.  Combine the flour, oats, baking soda and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well.  Stir in chips.
  • Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.  Cool for 1 minute before removing to wire racks.
Enjoy!
