Kitchen Sink Christmas Cookies
This is my grandmother's cookie recipe, which we lovingly call kitchen sink cookies because they have everything but the kitchen sink in them. They are a delicious holiday treat, and do very well when frozen.
- Serves: 30 persons
- 1cup brown sugar
- 1cup white sugar
- 1cup margarine
- 1cup vegetable oil
- 1teaspoon salt
- 1teaspoon baking soda
- 1teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½teaspoon butter-flavored extract
- 3½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1cup quick-cooking oats
- 1cup chocolate chips
- 1cup butterscotch chips
- 1cup crispy rice cereal (such as Rice Krispies®)
- ½cup candied fruit, cut into small pieces
- ½cup shredded coconut
Step 1Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Step 2Combine brown sugar, white sugar, margarine, and oil in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until creamy. Add egg, salt, baking soda, cream of tartar, vanilla extract, and butter flavor; mix well. Add flour and mix well. Stir in oats, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, rice cereal, candied fruit, and coconut; cookie dough will be difficult to stir.
Step 3Drop cookie dough onto baking sheets using spoons or a small ice cream scoop.
Step 4Bake in the preheated oven until edges are set and lightly golden, 8 to 12 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool.
