Sally Ayotte's South Pole Chocolate Chip Cookies

Country: Antarctica
Course: Desserts


  • 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)


  1. First, cream the butter and the two kinds of sugar.
  2. Now add the eggs and the vanilla.
  3. 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.
  4. Add the chips and the chopped nuts.
  5. 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.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes, or until the bottom edges are lightly browned.
