Cookie Problems: Kitchen Sink Cookies +Contest Winner!






So here we have some good old Kitchen Sink Cookies. It's when you have a cookie problem craving that just won't quit, and you simply MUST make cookies with whatever random ingredients you have in stock.

Chocolatey, crunchy, caramel-y, toffee-y. Sprinkles, even. Go for it.

Raisins from 2010? Jam 'em.

Toffee bits you bought on sale? Throw 'er in.

Crunchy nuts you use for oatmeal when you're trying to be healthy? Nut zone.

Rainbow sprinkles you bought for last year's birthday cake? No problemo.

Fancy expensive milk chocolate chunks? Oh yes.

I didn't include all of the above ingredients, but you get the gist. Throw the cookie dough together. Just throw it against a wall, practically. Then all you have to do is wait a measly 14 minutes max. Pour yourself a milky tea, get an epi of Orange Is The New Black ready and you will be in cookie couch potato heaven SOOOO soon.



















Kitchen Sink Cookies

Ingredients: 

1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup of granulated sugar
1 egg, room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups of all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup of milk chocolate pieces (I used Lindt milk chocolate)
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup peanut butter chips
a good sprinkling of, well, sprinkles. 

Make it!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

1. In a stand mixer, beat butter and sugar on high until fluffy. 
2. Scrape down the sides of bowl. With mixer on low, add egg and vanilla extract.
3. With mixer on low, add dry ingredients. 
4. Throw in the chocolate pieces, butterscotch and peanut butter chips and mix for like, ten seconds until incorporated. 
5. Dole out 1 1/2 inch balls of cookie dough onto parchment paper lined baking sheets. Sprinkle the tops of each cookie. 
6. Bake for 11-14 minutes, turning pans halfway. 

Right? COOKIE PROBLEMS!
