Cookies With Everything But The Kitchen Sink
There are lots of half-used things for cookie baking in the pantry since the holidays are over. I found at least five packages of ingredients that wouldn’t keep for very much longer. Since it is a snow day here for my eight year old, we decided to bake these crazy cookies after lunch.
We started the usual way by preheating the oven to 350°. In a mixing bowl we added two eggs, 3/4 cup brown sugar and 3/4 cup regular sugar, 1 cup shortening, we then creamed that together with the electric hand mixer until it became a much lighter color. All the dry ingredients were mixed in by hand. To the creamed mixture we added 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1 cup quick oats, two cups flour, and mixed until all flour was incorporated. The last stage was adding all the goodies from the pantry. There was about 1/4 cup chocolate chips, 1/2 cup butterscotch chips, 1/4 cup chopped dates, 1/4 cup slivered almonds, 1/4 cup walnut pieces. Into the bowl they went.By the round teaspoon arrange dough on a sheet and press down to flatten slightly leaving a bit of space between each. Bake for about 12 minutes until edges brown a bit. Allow to cool and enjoy a tasty treat on a snowy day…even on a warm and sunny day I hope you’ll enjoy these.
