White & Semi Sweet Chocolate-Butterscotch Cookies

This cookie has a delightful dough, reminiscent of butterscotch. The combinations of white and semi sweet chocolate compliments the dough flavor very well.

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup vegetable shortening, room temperature
1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4 ounces white chocolate, chopped
4 ounces semi sweet chocolate, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine butter, shortening, and sugar. Beat at a medium speed, until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix all ingredients well; then, stir in chopped chocolates.

Drop about 2 tablespoons of dough at a time about 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Bake until lightly golden brown around the edges, about 15 minutes.

Makes about 2 dozen cookies. Enjoy!
