Kitchen Sink Cookies


These cookies are not much to look at but they are yu-uu-ummy! My kids and husband said they are the best chocolate chip cookies ever. I don't know about the best ever, but I do know that like soup and brownie recipes, one can never have enough chocolate chip cookie recipes. This recipe happens to be a combination of several recipes with a couple modifications -- a true original! The marshmallows tend to melt and bubble up around the edges, which you may not like, but my family thought that was the best part! The name, of course, comes from throwing in everything but the kitchen sink. ;-)

Kitchen Sink Cookies
makes about 36 cookies

1 cup  butter
3/4 cup  packed brown sugar
2 1/4 cups  flour
1  egg
1 t. vanilla
1/2 t. salt
1 t. cream of tartar
1/2 cup  oats
1/2 cup  flaked coconut
1/2 cup  crispy rice cereal (Rice Krispies)
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup mini marshmallows

Cream butter and brown sugar. Add flour, egg, vanilla, salt and cream of tartar. Mix thoroughly. Add oats, coconut, cereal, chocolate chips and sugar. Mix lightly. Drop spoonfuls onto cookie sheets covered with parchment paper (I used a 1-1/2 T. scoop). Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-11 minutes until just lightly brown around the edges. Let cool for about 2 minutes on cookie sheets. Carefully left with a thin spatula and cool completely on a baking rack.

Can't wait to try these! I love it when cookie recipes call for all sorts of things that are always around the kitchen.

This seems to be so simple. I can make some of this later on since I already have all of its ingredients. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

I love cookies filled with goodies! And marshmallows! I know a 2-year-old who would love those!

My family and I absolutely love chocolate chip cookies so I’m definitely going to try your recipe too. We don’t really care about the looks, we love the taste.

Yummy! This really sounds so good. I love the Rice Krispies in the ingredients. I guess I really need to make some of this for my kids.
