Cookie Recipe – Kitchen Sink Cookies

Share this! Your friends will love it...

I have been having a heck of a time in the kitchen of my new house. Although to call it a kitchen is to give it a name that it does not deserve. You can see it in all of its glory (?) in the post I wrote about moving to Vermont. So far I have ruined a bundt cake and made a filed sheet cake. I have also burnt dinner at least twice. I do not do this. Needless to say I am not happy. So to remind myself that there was a time when I did know how to bake (and cook things like salmon with huckleberry sauce) I am bringing back this recipe for Kitchen Sink Cookies that I made for the hubby years ago when he was Fire Chief.

Kitchen Sink Cookies

He asked me to bake for him for two different events – a fundraiser and for his monthly fire meeting so I figured cookies were a good choice. They were easy to make, most people like cookies and they could be bagged up quite nicely for the fundraiser. 

Making a more than one batch of cookies also let me use the new toy the hubby had just bought me. What new toy you ask?

My new commercial KitchenAid mixer. The hubby surprised me with it – it has an 8 quart bowl and lots of power. I’ve been testing it with lots of baking. In fact when I made these cookies I did a triple batch and the mixer didn’t even blink. The recipe I’m including below is one batch – it’s easily doubled or tripled.

I call them Kitchen Sink cookies because each time I make them they are a little bit different depending upon what I have on hand – I just toss in everything I can find but the kitchen sink if you know what I mean. It makes for a fun and tasty cookie.

The firemen received a tray to enjoy at their training meeting.

The others I put three in a bag and tied with a pretty ribbon. They all sold out.

How Were The Kitchen Sink Cookies?

They really made a nice sized cookie – and a tasty one! Of course there were a few that erm, fell off the tray! I did taste test one or three and they were very yummy cookies. The best thing about this recipe is that it changes every time you make it. The flavor will always depend on what you have on hand to toss in! I love recipes like that. Half the fun is in not knowing what the final cookie will be.
