Tradition is everything at the Indianapolis 500, from the singing of “Back Home Again in Indiana” before the race to the winner’s celebratory bottle of milk. Why do the winners of the Memorial Day Weekend race drink milk? After three-time winner Louis Meyer drank buttermilk in Victory Lane in 1936, a milk industry executive made an effort to have future winners repeat the gesture, and it eventually stuck. I’m glad it stuck and I tip my glass of milk to the winner and these “Victory Chip Cookies.”
Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch each ground ginger and nutmeg
  • 1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
  2. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. Beat in vanilla.
  4. Combine the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, ginger and nutmeg; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
  5. Stir in the chips.
  6. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
  7. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
  8. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: about 6 dozen.
