Kitchen Sink Cookies

kitchen-sink-cookie-recipe-I found this recipe on a site called spoonful and thought it sounded interesting and had to share it with y’all!  Try them out and let me know what  you think. 🙂
Here is what she said about the recipe:
She used her favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe for the base and tossed in chocolate and butterscotch chips, along with oats, pretzels, potato chips and coffee grounds. Have your kids pick out their favorite salty snacks, then smash them with a rolling pin inside a large zip-top bag. Try fish crackers, pretzels or chips and any kind of baking chips or chopped chocolate-y candy you can dream up. Make these cookies your own, and don’t tell your friends what’s in them….they’ll beg for the recipe and will never guess that they’re made with the dregs from your pantry shelves!

  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar

How to make it

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the butter with the brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.
  3. Sift in the flour, baking soda and salt and beat until barely combined. Stir in the oats, coffee grounds if using, salty snacks and baking chips and mix well.
  4. Place spoonfuls of cookie dough (about 1 tablespoon each) a couple of inches apart on a cookie sheet. Bake for 10-13 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Transfer to a rack to cool completely.
