KITCHEN SINK COOKIES

Heath Bar Pieces, Pecans, Chocolate Chips, Caramel Chips, and salted pretzels are in these fabulous Kitchen Sink Cookies.

These Kitchen Sink Cookies are sweet, salty, crunchy, and chocolaty.  They are full of salted chopped pretzels, caramel chips, Heath Bar pieces, chocolate chips, and pecans.

I noticed that every time we ate at Panera, my oldest daughter always got a kitchen sink cookie.  She loves them, but until recently I had no idea why.  After one bite, they quickly became one of my favorite cookies too.  I had to try making a similar cookie at home.

I love chocolate chip cookies and make them often at my house.  You can see several of my other cookie recipes at the bottom of this post.  Typically, I make double batches cookies and freeze the dough.  This way we can have a fresh homemade chocolate chip cookie anytime.  For the best way to freeze cookie dough, stop by and see my step by step tips for freezing cookie dough.

First Step To Making Kitchen Sink Cookies:

Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cornstarch and set aside.

Second Step:

Using an electric mixer, cream together the soft butter and shortening.  Slowly mix in the granulated sugar and brown sugar until very creamy.

Third Step:

Add the eggs one at a time and then the pure vanilla.

Fourth Step:

Slowly add the dry ingredients after you put all of them in a large bowl and whisk.   Do not over mix.  Mix until you no longer see the dry ingredients.

Six Step:

  • Use an ice cream scoop and drop cookies onto a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  •  Place the pan of cookie dough in the freezer at least 20 minutes before baking.  See details here.

Bake Kitchen Sink Cookies:

  • Bake 375 degrees for 24 minutes if using a 1/3 cup ice cream scoop.
  • If using a regular size 1/4 cup ice cream scoop, bake 375 degrees for 15 minutes.  Bake 20 minutes if the cookies are frozen.  This recipe makes 36 regular size 1/4 cup cookies.

Cookie Tips:

  • Use butter and eggs at room temperature.  You should be able to leave a fingerprint easily in the butter.
  • Whip the butter, shortening, and sugars until light and fluffy.
  • Do not over mix the flour!
  • Mix in the dry ingredients just until you do not any powder and everything is incorporated.
  • Use parchment paper – I love parchment paper when baking.  Once you remove the cookies from the oven, just slide the parchment paper off the baking sheet.  This will allow them to cool.
  • Use an ice cream scoop when scooping out your cookies.  This way they will all be the same size and will bake evenly.
  • Freezing Cookie Dough – Scoop them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  You can put the cookies closer together on the baking sheet when freezing them than when you are baking them.  If you scoop the cookie dough out first and then freeze it, you do not have a problem with the dough being as hard as a rock and you cannot scoop it out of a container.  After scooping out the cookie dough, place the baking pan in the freezer until they are frozen.  Place frozen cookies into large freezer zip lock bags and store in the freezer.  When frozen, they do not spread out as much.
  • Do not overcook your cookies.  Once you remove the cookies from the oven, they will continue to bake.
