Everything and the Kitchen Sink Cookies

Sometimes, I just really need to cook. It's a craving.

And sometimes, there are no eggs in our apartment.

And when these two events coincide, bad things happen. Like these cookies. I just kept throwing things in until the dough tasted good. 


The end result? Banana-pecan-apricot-spiced-chocolate-chip-cookies. 



Kitchen Sink Cookies

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped dried apricots
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp nutmeg

Blend butter, sugars, bananas, and vanilla together. In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients (except for chocolate chips, pecans, and apricots). Add dry ingredients incrementally to the wet mixture. Once blended, add the good stuff. Bake at 350F for 10 minutes.

  10. Excellent cookie. I made it exactly as the recipe says. I don't love the flavor of butterscotch so I'm glad it was only 1/2 cup. I might even add less next time.

  15. A very tasty morsel, I had no vanilla or butterscotch chips so I added some peanut butter chips instead. They turned out perfect and I didn't have to bake them longer than suggested. Thank you for the recipe! They are amazing

  17. Nice and easy recipe to follow. I removed the butterscotch chips and substituted steal cut oats for rolled oats - since that is all I had in my pantry. Not the best substitution. Next time I will either used rolled oats, or no oats. The steal cut oats are like tiny seeds in the cookies. I guess at least it's fiber! Would be good with coconut too and raisens. Delicious simple cookie batter though.
