Kitchen Sink Cookies

Have you ever heard of those “one pot” dishes where you basically just throw all the ingredients into a single pot, or crockpot, and cook it and it’s done? Well, these cookies are kinda like that. You’re basically going to shove everything that’s in your kitchen in these cookies, besides the kitchen sink (hence the name).

In reality though, we are only going to be putting a crap ton of sweet and savory foods in the cookies of our choice. We aren’t actually going to take the can of corn and the box of pasta sitting in your cabinet and put it in the cookies, that would be gross. We will just stick to the ingredients on the list below!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 c all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 c unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 3/4 c granulated sugar
  • 2 lg eggs
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 c old fashion oats, rolled oats
  • 1 c crushed Lay’s potato chips
  • 3/4 c butterscotch chips
  • 3/4 c chocolate chips
  • 3/4 c mini M&M’s
  • 3/4 c chopped walnuts

Yes, we are going to put ALL of those things inside of one cookie. Get excited!

Also, before you go any further, if you plan on making this recipe, you should know ahead of time that this recipe requires 45 minutes of chilling. That being said, do not make these if you want to make quick cookies; these require a little more love and attention.

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  2. Using a handheld mixer, or stand mixer, cream the butter on medium-high speed until smooth, about 1 minute.
    • If you are using a handheld mixer, do this in a large bowl.
  3. Add in packed brown sugar and granulated sugar. Mix until creamed, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add in milk, eggs and vanilla until combined, about 1 minute.
  5. Scrape down the bowl and mix again, if necessary.
  6. Combine dry ingredients with wet on low speed.
  7. With the mixer on low, add in the oats.
  8. Mix in the potato chips, butterscotch, chocolate chips, mini M&M’s and walnuts.
    • The batter will be VERY thick. That’s good!
  9. Refrigerate the dough for at least 45 minutes.
    • You can always make this dough ahead of time. It can sit in the refrigerator for up to 4 days, covered. If you do this, allow it to sit out for 30 minutes before rolling the cookies!
  10. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
    • If your cookies tend to stick to the pan, line the pan with parchment paper or silicone mats.
  11. Make 1 1/2 tbsp sized balls. Roll them and places them about 2 inches apart on the baking sheet.
    • I always do a staggered formation just to be safe and avoid colliding cookies! Also, when I do this I tend to put a little less room between the cookies.
  12. Bake the cookies for 12 to 13 minutes until the sides are slightly brown, rotating the baking sheet halfway through.
  13. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool on the baking sheets for 3-5 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
  14. Enjoy!

 

I am super sorry for the lack of a photo with this post! I literally ate the cookies too fast to remember to take a picture! I recorded an entire video for making the cookies, but forgot to take a photo of the final products. I promise when I make them again, which will probably be in a week, I will take a photo and update this post. Again, sorry for the inconvenience!

Test Kitchen: Opinions and Changes

If you follow the Goods by Gabi Facebook Page, then you would know that a little over a week ago my Sally’s Cookie Addiction cookbook came in the mail! That being said, I just had to start trying out some of the recipes in her book! An added bonus for all of you is that all the recipes in her book are not available on her blog; they are exclusive recipes for the cookbook! That means that unless you have her cookbook, you would be missing out on all of these tasty treats.

Although these cookies seem strange when reading through the ingredients (potato chips??), they are actually super delicious! The sweet and salty complement each other well and, unless you watched someone make them, you wouldn’t even know potato chips are in there.

 

That is all for now! Like I mentioned above, I will add a photo soon. What’re the strangest things you’ve ever put in a cookie? Let me know in the comments below!

 

Happy Baking!
