Kitchen Sink Cookies

Have you ever gone looking for a snack, and despite the fact there is a ton of stuff in the cupboard, there is nothing to eat!

I have heard this waaaaaay to many times in my house… so what do you eat when there is too much of “nothing” in your cupboards?

You take all that stuff and you jam it in to a cookie.

The great thing about these cookies is, you can put pretty much anything in them… I mean it… take a look at the recipe……

Kitchen Sink Cookies

[Adapted from my favorite blogger Jessica’s cookies!!! http://www.howsweeteats.com/2012/08/crazy-confetti-compost-cookies/ ]

¾ Cups of unsalted butter
2 Cups of Flour
1/2 Teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 Teaspoon of  salt
1 Cup of brown sugar
1/2 Cup  regular sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 Teaspoons of vanilla extract
3/4 Cup of potato chips, crushed ( I used salt and vinegar)
3/4 Cup of chocolate chips
1/2 Cup of pretzels, crushed
1/3 Cup of butterscotch chips
1/3 Cup of Skor bits
1/3 Cup of mini M&M
1/3 Cup of rainbow sprinkles

Pre heat the oven to 325 degrees.

Melt and cool the butter.

While the butter is cooling, mix flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl, set aside.

Mix both sugars, vanilla, and both the egg and egg yolk in a large bowl.

Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the wet, until combined.

Now the fun part, add the remaining ingredients, (use whatever you want, mix it up!).

Roll out the dough into 1-1/2 inch balls.  At this point you can simply put them on your baking sheet…. Or you could use the method I used above in my pictures.  This method (and recipe) was adapted from my favorite blogger.  Take the rolled ball and split it in half.  Now stack them one on top of the other (round parts touching, like in the picture).  I used my hand to squish it down a bit.

Bake for 10 -12 minutes.

Cool on a cooling rack while still on the pan for 5 minutes, then place the cookies directly on the cooling rack, until completely cooled.
