Introduction: Calico Cookies

I can't remember why or how I started making these cookies, but they've become a thing around our house and I needed something to bring to my friends' bridal shower later today. We call them Calico Cookies because they are a mix of everything like our cat Sushi, who is a calico. Also, we figured no one would want to eat Sushi Cookies.

Step 1: BoM

1 1/2 cups of softened/melted butter

1 1/4 cup white sugar

1 1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tbs vanilla extract

2 tsp salt

2 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 eggs (1 whole egg, 1 egg white)

3-3 1/2 cups ap flour

1/4-1/2 cup chocolate chips

1/4-1/2 cup white chocolate chips

1/4-1/2 cup butter scotch chips

1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut

Step 2: Butter & Sugar

Soften butter so it is easy to mix up with the sugars.

Step 3: Egg & Stuff

Add salt, eggs, and vanilla extract to the buttery sugar and mix well. Then add baking soda and flour and stir. Add more flour if after the first 3 cups your dough seems a little too wet (or don't).

Step 4: Add Calico

I usually start with a 1/4 cup of the chocolate, white, and butterscotch chips and then add more as I stir and see the distribution. I've never tried the coconut before but I liked the texture it gave.

Step 5: Bake

Roll little balls (maybe slightly flatten them if you have a stiffer dough) and spread them about an inch apart. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack.

Step 6: Enjoy!

Keep the cookies in an airtight container (after they cool).
