Mary's Cookies of Racial Harmony

These are a favorite of our cartoonist. The cookie itself is nice and chewy, and very very sweet. The name comes from the many different colors of chips involved, which all join together as people of different colors should join together to produce a beautiful product.

The sheer variety of different chips in this recipe means that every cookie will be different, and every bite of every cookie will be a little different. I think you will enjoy them!

This recipe calls for raspberry chocolate chips. It was originally created with Hershey's Raspberry Chocolate Chips in mind, but over the past few years these have been hard to find. I don't know if they've been discontinued. If you can't find Hershey's, Nestle makes a Semi-Sweet Raspberry swirled chip that works just as well. Don't be afraid to experiment.


2¼ cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted
¾ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 bag (10 oz) Reese'sTM Peanut Butter flavored chips
1 cup Nestle'sTM Toll HouseTM semi-sweet chocolate chips
⅓ cup white chocolate chips
⅓ cup butterscotch flavored chips
⅓ cup Hershey'sTM Raspberry Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, and vanilla together in large mixer bowl. Add egg and egg yolk, beating well after each. Gradually beat in flour mixture. When well mixed, add peanut butter morsels slowly, followed by Toll House and the other morsels, mixing well. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto parchment paper or ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for at least 2 minutes before moving to wire racks to cool completely.

Yield: About 4 dozen cookies, enough to share.
