Kitchen Sink Kookies

These people that I live with love cookies. They can not get enough cookies, which means I am always baking cookies… especially this time of the year. Fa lalala and all that. These are my biggest hit, besides my sugar cookies, but I’ll talk about those another day.

You’ll need:

  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white Sugar
  • 1-1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla
  • 1-1/2 cup AP flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1-1/4 cup quick oats
  • 3/4 cup mini M&Ms®
  • 1/2 cup peanuts, halved
  • 3/4 cups chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips

 

Preheat oven to 375*

Cream butter with both sugars in a stand mixer ( I use the paddle attachment) until creamy and kinda fluffy.  Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each one, then  add vanilla and beat again.

Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a seperate bowl and mix well. With the mixer on low, add just a little of the flour mixture at a time. Then add in remaining ingredients…and combine on low until blended.

Careful not to over mix too muc,

Use a cookie scoop to scoop balls of dough onto a cookie sheet. Bake until  brown ( about 15-17 minutes) then allow to cool on a rack.

Easy Peasy!
