Triple Chip Cookies


I was in the mood for some cookies this weekend. Feel good cookies. Comfort cookies. Something simple and delicious and quick to fix.


I used three kinds of chips in the batter.

And a lot of them.


Like 4.5 cups of them.

White Chips.

Milk Chocolate Chips.

Butterscotch Chips.

Chips. Chips. Chips. Or morsels. Whatever you want to call them… I’m using chips today.


You’ll need to grab a few basics to make these cookies.


I used more brown sugar than regular sugar for extra yumminess.

After mixing all of the ingredients and adding the chips you can use a small scoop to place your dough on the cookie sheet.


Like so.


It helps to get more uniform-sized cookies


By using a 1.5 inch scoop, I managed to get a ton of cookies out of this recipe.


5 dozen cookies to be exact.

Minus the handful from this photo that are already in my tummy.


I really liked the taste of all the extra chips.


It guarantees some in each and every bite.

Triple Chip Cookies

2 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips
1 1/2 cups white chips

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, mix flour, soda and salt with a wire whisk and set aside.
  • Using a mixer, mix butter and both sugars for about 2 minutes until light and fluffy.
  • Add eggs and vanilla and mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Add flour in two additions, scraping down the sides in between. Mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Mix chips together in large bowl and stir into the cookie batter.
  • Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Then use a 1.5 inch scoop to place cookie batter 2 inches apart on baking sheet.
  • Bake for about 10-12 minutes.

Makes 5 dozen cookies.

Note: For 1 1/2 cups of chips you’ll need a 10.5 – 12 oz. bag. This will give you a few left over. I didn’t use the entire amount of chips from each bag because I was going to sprinkle the remaining chips on top right before baking, but I forgot. But you can also get away with using the entire bag in the batter if you like.

Tasting Update: Try baking these closer to 10 minutes. These were crunchy today when I ate one. Or three so far. Just thought I would update you since I usually like softer cookies. Although that hasn’t stopped me from continuing to eat them. Yum!

Those look so good- I think they could convince me to like white chocolate chips!

Kristen said...

Mmmm! I wonder what they would be like with peanut butter chips subbed in for the butterscotch chips?

Charli said...

Bakerella,does everything you touch turn into baking gold?

I am sad because I just spent 3 hours in my kitchen making caramel cupcakes with salted chocolate ganache,which should be amazing, but the chocolate is too overpowering and I don’t have the time or energy to give it another go just yet. It was fun to make them and taste everything as I went though. :)

I am going to pick up some butterscotch chips next time I am at the grocery. As always, thanks for sharing.

carina said...

I have made this type of cookie before but just using butterscotch chips and chocolate chips but have been discouraged to do it again because the buuerscotch chips seem to have melted and on the bottom of the cookie gotten hard like crispy but not in a good way. I’ve used Guittard butterscotch chips. Have u ever experianced this sort of thing? Maybe it was the brand? Any ideas? By the way I love your blog, you’ve really inspired me to do so many things that I’ve so much enjoyed!

August 22, 2011 06:45 AM

Can’t go wrong with extra chocolate. Now I want cookies as my post-breakfast snack!

so excited to have an update from Bakerella! especially since you made the most beautiful cookies… I can turn down cake, ice cream, or pie, but I can never turn down a cookie… especially ones that look as yummy as those do. I’ll definitely be making those soon!

Yummy! I always make my cookies with chocolate and buttterscotch chips — something about that combo is just perfect. But now I’m inspired to try a batch with white chips….any excuse to make cookies! :-)

Kelsey said...

Oooh, sometime I should try to make quintuple chip cookies – include peanut butter chips and mint chips. Ooh, or maybe mix up the kinds of chocolate chips used – mix dark, semi-sweet, and milk chocolate together.

Now I wanna bake cookies!

August 22, 2011 11:33 AM

Monica said...

are they soft or crunchy? anyway they look so good! I also mix the chips when i make brownies, dark, milk and withe chocolate, they turn so soft on the inside.
hope you are doing well!

August 22, 2011 04:39 PM
Kipi said...

Made these today…oh so good! I added about a half a cup of shredded coconut. Yummy!

August 22, 2011 04:44 PM
Jenn said...

I like soft cookies too. I use half butter and half shortening stick in my chocolate chip cookies and only cook them 9 minutes. They are a little soft in the middle when I pull them out, but after a couple minutes cooling on the pan, and then on the rack, they are firm enough not to fall apart…and still soft the next day. Mmm. I was thinking of making cookies; this confirms the need. :)

August 22, 2011 04:54 PM
Yolanda said...

Yum!! Such a yummy and simple recipie! I’m going to make them with the kids after school! Thanks for the tip on staying closer to 10 min, I like my cookies softer too. But, just throw a piece of bread in with yours, seal it up, and they’ll be soft again in a few hours (which I’m sure you already knew! But I learned that trick from my mom).

August 22, 2011 04:55 PM
Caroline said...

I made these today and they didn’t turn out too good ! I halved the recipe and converted it into Grams so I suspect it was a fault on my part; the batter was very sticky and not ‘doughy’ but what came out the oven still tasted nice! I’m sure I will have another go, using the right recipe without changing anything ;)

August 22, 2011 05:17 PM
bakerella said...

Monica – Soft yesterday and crunchy today, but in a good way.
Next time I’ll try baking them a little less.

Kipi – glad you enjoyed them!

Hope they come out better next time, but the mixture is more like a thick batter than a dough.

Hi Angie,

I am Nancy Hinchman’s sister. Think I might have met you many years ago. Wanted to thank you for this great recipe. My husband and I have a son at the Citadel in SC and I send cookies each week. This will be something new!

Thanks again,

Barb-OK said...

If you want a little softer cookie, you may need to cut back on the flour, or measure it differently. If you scoop and sweep, you may be over weight. Weigh your flour to get accurate measure. 1 cup = 4.4 oz or 125 grams.

August 22, 2011 09:46 PM
Vicki Bensinger said...

Don’t these sound yummy! I just made some Chocolate Chocolate Chip Espresso Cookies that I added 24 ounces of chips to. They too were delightful! I like the combination of all your chips. Fun and confusing to the palate I’m sure!
