What could be better than a chocolate chip cookie? Easy…a TRIPLE chip cookie!
This brilliant idea was inspired (again!) by my mother-in-law. You see, I was just going to make classic chocolate chip cookies during my Cookie Baking Extravaganza, but Donna (my MIL) started talking about how she used to make these Triple Chip Cookies, and that everyone loved them.
I couldn’t get the idea out of my head, so I checked the cabinet, and lo and behold, I had butterscotch and white chocolate chips to add in.
The three different kinds of chips give these cookies a fantastic mix of flavors. A great twist on an old classic. They make an unexpected surprise and I’m sure your guests, or family, (or just you!) will love them!

- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
