What is a kitchen sink cookie?

So, basically, a kitchen sink cookie is one that is full of a wide variety of ingredients. The term “kitchen sink” is used to imply that everything but the kitchen sink is used in this recipe.  

I have spent years trying to recreate my grandmas signature chewy kitchen sink cookies and have finally nailed them!  This is the perfect cookie when you want to use up a bunch of baking leftovers in the pantry.

We love this kitchen sink cookies recipe for Easter.  I remember my grandma always having a jar full of kitchen sink cookies for the grand kids whenever we would go to her place.  

It was always a surprise as to what would be in them.  So today I’ve taken things from our Easter pantry to enjoy.

Servings:  18

Prep time: 10 minutes  

Cook time: 12-14 minutes

Total time: 22 minutes

Ingredients

  • Salted butter – room temperature.
  • Brown sugar – key in making chewy cookies.
  • White sugar – a pantry staple.
  • Large eggs – farm fresh is always a treat!
  • Vanilla extract – I like to use pure extract but artificial works just as well.
  • All purpose flour – you can sift and level the measuring cup but I honestly never do.
  • Baking soda – helps the cookies bake evenly.
  • Quaker instant oatmeal – you can use other brands but this was my Grandmas go-to.
  • White baking chocolate – cut into chunks.
  • Cadbury mini eggs – chopped.  The colorful chocolate chunks are a must for Easter!
  • Ripple potato chips – crushed up into pieces.

Tips & tricks

  • Store leftover cookies in an airtight container for up to a week.  They can also go into a large freezer bag and into the freezer for up to three months.
  • ​Don’t be afraid to mix it up and next time add a little bit of a different flavor with more salty mix-ins.  Or go for a peanut butter twist with chopped up peanut butter cups or peanut butter chips.
  • The key to the perfect chewy cookie is in slightly under baking them, so be sure to watch your oven temperature and timing.
  • These cookies are meant to be a hand full – don’t scrimp on the cookie dough ball size when forming the cookies. Bigger is better!
