Tropical Mix Cookies

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 go 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 use too and it had a 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
2 eggs
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

Mix the butter, shortening, eggs, and milk. Stir in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the tropical mix and the chocolate chips. Drop round teaspoonful's onto a greased cookie sheet, bake 8-10 minutes.
