Random Chip Cookies

I was bored last night and felt like baking, so I decided to use up the rest of the half bags of random chocolate chips. They actually turned out really well. They were a bit sweet last night, but I tried them again today and I feel like they're less sweet. Obviously you could make these with normal chocolate chips, that's what the regular recipe called for, I just wanted to see what would happen if I threw all the extras together :P I used white chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, toffee bits, and butterscotch chips. Soooo yummy!

Any Chip Cookies

Adapted from Joy Of Cooking

Makes about 3 dozen cookies (ish... forgot to count)

1/2 cup shortening (I ran out of butter)

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup plus 2 tbs flour

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 to 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.

Cream together shortening (or butter, you could obviously use that too), and sugars, then beat in egg and vanilla. Sift in flour, salt, and baking soda and stir until completely incorporated. Mix in chocolate chips. Bake for about 9 minutes, until slightly brown on the edges but still not completely set in the middle. Cool on the cookie sheet for about 5 minutes before removing to cool completely on wire cookie racks.


  1. love throwing in assorted chips into cookies, really like the idea of butterscotch chips and toffee bits.
