Kitchen Sink Christmas Cookies

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.

  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Step 2

    Combine 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.
  3. Step 3

    Drop cookie dough onto baking sheets using spoons or a small ice cream scoop.
  4. Step 4

    Bake in the preheated oven until edges are set and lightly golden, 8 to 12 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool.
