With the first month of Dental School behind me, I’m all about quick and easy recipes these days and these kitchen sink cookies are just that. In 20 minutes tops, you can have fresh baked, warm cookies sitting on your kitchen counter. Definitely a perfect solution for any late night cookie/baking craving! I have had my fair share of pumpkin muffins lately, but I’m always in need of some chocolate. I love this recipe because it consistently yields perfectly soft and fluffy cookies and it is totally adaptable to whatever you have around the house or whatever you are in the mood for.
I threw in a combination of oats, heath bar, M&Ms and chocolate chips. You could go crazy and add peanut butter or even nutella. Chopped pretzels and potato chips would also be a fun twist! This is my favorite way to get rid of all of the almost empty bags of chocolate chips and candies in my baking cabinet (besides eating them by the handful). I may have to make another batch to get me through this next week of studying before our first test.
Kitchen Sink Cookies
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup rolled oats (optional)
Add in whatever you like! (chocolate chips, M&Ms, nuts, other chopped candy, chopped pretzels, potato chips…)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a medium bowl combined melted butter, sugars and vanilla. Whisk in two eggs. Add flour mixture to wet mixture and stir until well combined. Add in oats and other mix-ins. Form dough into equal balls, about 2 tablespoons each, and bake on a cookie sheet for 9 minutes. Let cool on the hot baking sheet for several minutes and then move to a cooling rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
