Edit March 26, 2023: So it turns out I forgot to add sugar to the recipe. I don't remember how much sugar was in this cookie, so I went with 1 1/2 cups. I also added vanilla, because I think cookies need that flavor.
Wal-Mart had a bag of tropical mix for a $1.
I still had a half bag of chocolate chips.
It was time to make cookies!
These cookies are made up of ingredients I got from my mother-in-law. She had a stroke a while back and can no longer cook. One of the items I used for the first time is self-rising flour. I was not anticipating the texture of the cookies. It lacked the chewiness I was using too and it had more of a biscuit or cake-like texture. It was not bad. I will just not use self-rising flour again in cookies.
So here is the recipe - using all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
3 1/2 cup flour
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
1 cup tropical trail mix
1 cup chocolate chips
1 t vanilla
Mix the butter, shortening, eggs, and milk. Stir in the flour, baking soda, sugar, and salt. Add the tropical mix and the chocolate chips. Drop round teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet, and bake for 8-10 minutes.
