Kitchen Sink Cookies
makes 3-4 dozen
1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/4 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 cups rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup raisins
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup white chocolate chips
1/3 cup unsalted peanuts
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Lightly grease 2 baking sheets and set aside (or use a Silpat).
- Cream together the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix until light and fluffy.
- Add the eggs to the butter mixture one at time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla and beat until well blended.
- Combine the flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a separate bowl. Stir to mix. Then add your raisins, chocolate chips, and whatever else you may find in your pantry.
- Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and stir just until the dry ingredients are moist and well blended. Do not over mix.
- Scoop the dough with a 1/4 cup (2 ounce) ice cream scoop or by the heaping tablespoon and drop onto the prepared baking sheet about 3 inches apart. Press the cookies flat with the back of a spatula to a thickness of about 1/4 to 1/2 inch.
- Bake 12-14 minutes for soft, chewy cookies; 15-18 minutes for crunchy cookies. Cool 5 to 10 minutes on the baking sheet before removing the cookies to a baking rack to cool completely.
* I omitted the craisins when I baked them
I waited for the cookies to cool, then had to try one. It was as delicious as it looked, enjoy with a big glass of milk! You could even eat these cookies for breakfast without feeling too guilty, they do have oatmeal and raisins in them :) I'd say this was another successful Pinterest find.
This recipe produced about 4 dozen cookies. I sent about 2 dozen of these cookies with Greg to work this morning. This way we won't be eating them for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the next week!
