This recipe is from week 10 of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every nation on Earth, and Antarctica is my 10th stop (yes I know Antarctica is technically not a country, but I do love a challenge). These cookies are so famous that Air National Guard pilots have been known to detour to the South Pole just to get some.
- 1⁄2 cup margarine
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 3⁄4 cup packed brown sugar
- 3⁄4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2⁄3 cup chocolate chips
- 2⁄3 cup white chocolate chips
- 2⁄3 cup butterscotch chips
- 1 cup nuts, chopped (I used peanuts and cashews)
- First, cream the butter and the two kinds of sugar:.
- Now add the eggs and the vanilla.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda and salt. Then add to the sugar/butter/egg mixture and blend until a soft dough forms.
- Add the chips and the chopped nuts.
- Drop the dough by teaspoons onto a baking sheet, about two inches apart. The recipe doesn't say to grease the baking sheet, but my cookies stuck pretty badly so I would definitely put a little butter on the pan next time I make these.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes, or until the bottom edges are lightly browned.
