Kitchen Sink Cookies

Logan had his birthday, over a month ago, actually. And when I asked him what he wanted for his birthday he said cookies. So that's what he got. And I made the best ones evvvvver!!! 
Kitchen Sink Cookies, I call them that because you can put in whatever ingredients that you want. 
This is the basic recipe and then you can add or subtract anything. 

Kitchen Sink Cookies

Yields: 3 dozen large cookies

3 cups flour

1 Tbsp baking powder

1 Tbsp baking soda

1 Tbsp cinnamon

1 tsp salt

3 sticks butter, room temp

1 1/2 cups white sugar

1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar

3 eggs

1 Tbsp vanilla

1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips

3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

2 cups sweetened flaked coconut

2 cups chopped pecans (8 oz.)

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a bowl.
  • In an 8-quart bowl, beat butter on medium speed, until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute.  
  • Gradually beat in sugars and continue beating after each.  
  • Beat in eggs and vanilla.  
  • Stir in flour mixture until just combined. 
  •  Add chocolate chips, oats, coconut and pecans- put the coconut and pecans in a food processor and chop them up into finely. 
  • Take a ice cream scoop and scoop out the dough. Pat tops of cookiedough down. 
  • Bake for 16-18 minutes. 
  • Cool on cookie sheet till cool. 
If I don't have enough chocolate chips or something, I'll add a hand full of pretzels or potatoe chips. You can even put in different nuts or dried fruit. 
These cookies are so crazy that my mixer wasn't big enough for them. So please use the biggest mixing bowl you have!

This was before I added the oats!! 

 You can also put them in the freezer and bake them whenever you want!

These are my favorite cookies, for sure. I hope they will be your favorite too :)
