It happened last week. My kids went back to school. I know this happens every year. Summer comes and goes so quickly and all of a sudden the kids are back in school.

Why doesn’t winter seem to come and go so quickly? Why does it always seem summer is the shortest season?

Anyways, my kids are back in school and I’m suddenly thrown back into routine, carpool, sports, and homework.

Let’s talk about homework for just a quick minute. Then I promise you we will talk about cookies. Homework is hard. I don’t remember it being hard when I was in school, but now as an educated adult I find it quite difficult. Why is that?

And why, for the love of all things pure and holy, can’t we teach math the way I learned it? Why all these charts and sidebars?? My kids think I’m an idiot when I show them how I learned it. Like somehow, I’m wrong. I only graduated high school and college with good grades, but because I can’t do some silly math sidebar in long division I’m labeled “wrong.” At least reading hasn’t changed, as far as I can tell we still read books from left to right.

Now, on to these cookies. One of my favorite traditions is to bake cookies every week for my kids. I try to bake on Mondays so they have cookies for the rest of the week, for lunches and snacking.

I know some of you think my cookie recipes make a ginormous amount (I hear ya, 5 dozen is a lot of cookies sitting around). BUT, most of them can be halved EASILY. Also, one thing I do (and I’ve mentioned it before) is only bake up half the dough.

The remainder of the cookie dough is scooped into balls onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and put in the freezer for one hour (while I bake the cookies). I then remove the cookies from the freezer and put them in a large Ziploc freezer bag with the name of the cookie and the baking instructions written on the bag. This way, I have plenty of cookies baked up for the week, but I also have a second week’s worth of cookie dough ready to bake in a moments notice.

To bake the frozen dough, just take out how many cookies you want, place them on your parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake according to your directions. If cooking from frozen, I usually need to add about 2-3 minutes extra. Have a guest drop over for coffee? This is the perfect solution. Take out just the amount of cookies you want to bake and in minutes you have freshly baked cookies. Also great for new moms, housewarming, etc.

These triple chip cookies are absolutely awesome. The chewiness from the melted butter base is perfect when combined with the three types of morsels…butterscotch, white chocolate and semi-sweet. You can change the types of chips to your liking, subbing peanut butter, dark chocolate or even m&m’s!! ENJOY!

And for a moment of parental bragging…here is a cute collage of my kids on the first day of school! My oldest, son, is a junior in high school, then I have a freshman, 6th grader, and 4th grader. My loves!!

Triple Chip Cookies

Rating: 51

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 5 dozen


  • 1 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 4 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/4 cup butterscotch morsels, divided
  • 1 1/4 cup white chocolate morsels, divided
  • 1 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels, divided


  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat melted butter with sugars for two minutes. Add in eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla extract. Beat in flour, baking powder and salt until fully combined. Fold in 1 cup of each type of morsel (reserving the 1/4 cup for garnish).
  2. Scoop cookie dough onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. I use a 2 Tbsp scoop for these cookies. Using the reserved morsels, press one or two of each kind onto the tops of each cookie. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. Remove and cool completely on a wire rack.
  3. Store cookies for up to one week in an airtight container.


The extra morsels for garnish are optional. If you want to skip this step, just add the morsels into the cookie dough instead.

To freeze baked cookies, allow cookies to cool completely. Place baked, cooled cookies into a ziploc freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months.

To freeze cookie dough, scoop dough into 2Tbsp scoops on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Freeze dough for one hour. Remove scoops from baking sheet and place in a labeled ziploc freezer bag for up to three months. To bake, remove frozen cookie dough and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake according to directions, adding 2-3 minutes for frozen dough. ENJOY.

I almost always half my cookie recipes so I won’t have a bunch laying around the house. Great ideas about freezing the dough. It seems so organized, more than I can claim to be. About homework we tend to butt heads around here about how it’s done and the teacher didn’t teach me it that way. It can be frustrating and sometimes I feel as if I am back in school!

You’re very smart! I stupidly make more “because I have kids”, but they don’t eat much and I end up Hoovering it all! I will now make less, I will now make less, I will now make less……. ;)

What beautiful faces. Enjoy. As a mother of 4 myself, but older, time goes so fast. Kids are the best time of your life. Such miracles from God.


Jess @ On Sugar Mountain August 26, 2013 at 9:35 pm

I actually think cookies were the only thing that kept me from pulling all my hair out in math class each year. >_< NOT my cup of tea, let me tell you. But you know what is? COOKIES WITH ALL THE CHIPS IN THEM!!! AAHHH :D

Oh I know!! I MAJORED in math. I can do complex geometric proofs. But elementary math, the way they teach it now? Sometimes I have NO clue.

These cookies look delicious, I really love all the different chips. I have never thought of freezing cookie dough before, that is a great idea. I love that I would always have the cookie dough on hand when a craving hits.

Your kids are so beautiful, Aimee! Gosh, they all look like you in different ways. And how funny that one is a blonde-haired blue-eyed cutie and everyone else is brunette! I totally wish you were my mom to bake me cookies on the first day of school :)

Your kids all look fabulous. And so do these cookies! I have a few triple chip recipes with cookies, bars and so forth – there is nothing better than the combo of butterscotch and white chocolate in a soft cookie! Ok PB chips aren’t too shabby either :)

Freezing dough is the best. I love it when I have a cookie crazing and all I have to do is open the freeze drawer and turn on the oven.

Summer definitely does go by too quickly, but at least you got some amazing cookies here to cheer you up!


Tanya Schroeder August 27, 2013 at 10:44 am

Oh my gosh, I know, it’s right back into our crazy schedule! No easing into things here. And you are right, math is not the same as when I was a kid. I guess if my kids are going to think I’m stupid in math, I’ll just redeem myself with cookies like these! Can’t go wrong with all those chips!

I MAY be busting a gut over here listening you talk about the math and how it’s changed. It’s so true! We got the same outcome back in the day so why’d they have to go change it. I’m pretty sure they’ll change reading sometime too….Might as well make some cookies at least that doesn’t change to much!

My kids’ homework makes me feel like a numb-skull. It’s a good thing my oldest is so good at math, because he kinda teaches me what I’ve forgotten. You’ve got a great idea to make extra dough and freeze some for cookie emergencies…I need to try that. I don’t bake cookies much because homemade cookies are one of my greatest weaknesses. These would have me in serious trouble!

Wow, these cookies look so delicious! I love all the different chips in them. <3 I keep thinking about your oatmeal chocolate chip cookies – I must try them very soon!
I like your strategy of freezing the unbaked cookie dough balls. That's so clever!
Pinning these! :D

Maria G. August 29, 2013 at 4:18 pm

These cookies look so tasty as if they are baked in a professional bakery! And the recipe is very detailed. The only thing I wonder is how can they be stored during the whole week without losing their flavor? Anyway, I want to try to bake them too!

I store mine in a large airtight container. They last about a week. Otherwise you can freeze them after baking in a freezer safe ziploc bag and that works too!

I need to make cookies for a large party how long can I store them after baking I need about 6 doz. each of 6 different types


Amber November 2, 2014 at 6:50 pm

It says you wait until they are completely cool, then store baked cookies in a freezer ziplock bag for up to 3 months. Or you can store the cooled baked cookies in an air tight container at room temperature and they are good for one week. Hope that helps! Sounds like you have a lot of baking to do!
