Kitchen Sink Cookies Recipe

Why are these cookies called Kitchen Sink Cookies?  Because one of the things that I remember most fondly about my dad is how when he would order a pizza, he would say that he wanted everything but the kitchen sink.  So, when I mix up a batch of these cookies, I liketo include anything and everything I can find.  Up to 2 cups of mix-ins.  I generally keep it at a cup and a half of mix-ins.

You can choose almost any cookie mix-in, but here are my favorites:

  • Chocolate Chips
  • Butterscotch Chips
  • Peanut Butter Chips
  • Chopped Nuts
  • Coconut
  • Raisins
  • Seeds
  • M&Ms
  • Reeses’ Pieces
  • Trail Mix

Here is the basic recipe:


  • 1 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 1 cup crunchy or creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • Up to 2 cups of Mix-Ins
  1. Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars. Beat in eggs.
  2. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir into batter. Add your mix-ins.  Put batter in refrigerator for 1 hour.
  3. Roll into 1 inch balls and put on baking sheets. Flatten each ball slightly with your hand. Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for about 10 minutes or until cookies begin to brown. Do not over-bake.

Let cool on the cookie sheet for at least 2 minutes before you transfer to a cookie sheet.  Allow to cool completely before you enjoy.  However, these are soooooo amazing, we generally devour a few as they are coming out of the oven.

  3. These look yummy! I love the idea of making them your own with favorite add-ins. I bet you could even add Oreo cookie pieces just for a change. (Found you on Full Plate Thursday)
