Kitchen Sink Cookies
Thick, soft cookies loaded with everything but the kitchen sink. Add all your favorite mix-ins: chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, toffee, nuts, coconut and more.
Servings 15 - 20
- 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup unsalted butter softened but still cool to the touch
- ½ cup packed brown sugar make sure it is fresh and soft
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 cups mix-ins see note
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a small bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, using a hand mixer or stand mixer, beat butter and both sugars for 1-2 minutes, scraping the bowl as needed. Add egg and vanilla and beat until combined.
Slowly add the flour mixture, beating until just combined. Add 1-½ cups of mix-ins (reserving the rest for pressing on top of the cookies), stir until well combined.
Scoop 2-tablespoon portions of dough and place the dough balls a couple inches apart on the cookie sheets*. Top each ball of dough with a few of the reserved mix-ins (this makes for a prettier cookie).
Bake the cookies for 9-12 minutes, until the edges are beginning to turn golden brown and the very center is still slightly underdone. Rotate the baking sheets halfway through cooking time, if necessary. Note: If your dough balls are smaller or larger than 2 tablespoons, adjust bake time accordingly. Make sure not to overbake - the cookies should still be soft in the center.
Place the baking sheets on wire racks and allow the cookies to cool completely.
Mix-ins: I used a combination of chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips, white chocolate chips, sweetened shredded coconut, toffee bits, mini dried marshmallows, and nuts. Use any combination of nuts, "chips", coconut, toffee, M&M's, raisins etc.
*For thicker cookies (as pictured) form the dough balls into mounds that are taller rather than wider. Don't overwork the dough with your hands, just briefly press into a oval-ish mound with a flat bottom.
