Farmhouse Kitchen Sink Cookies


1 cup unsalted butter @ room temperature

1 cup granulated sugar

2⁄3 cup tightly packed light brown sugar

2 tbs corn syrup

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 1⁄3 cups flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp kosher salt

1 cup bitter-sweet chocolate (chips or chopped)

1/2 cup butterscotch chips

½ cup unsweetened coconut

1/2 cup coarsely chopped graham crackers

1⁄2 cup old-fashioned quick oats

2 1/2 tsp used coffee grounds

1 cup rippled potato chips

1 cup pretzel sticks

1 cup corn flakes

½ cup coarsely chopped unsalted pecans


1. Combine butter and sugars in mixing bowl and cream together. Add egg and vanilla, and beat for 10 minutes.

2. On low speed add flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix only one minute.

3. Add chocolate, butterscotch chips, grahams, pecans, oats, and coffee and mix 20 seconds. Add corn flakes and pretzels and chips however  LIGHTLY MIX WITH HANDS so you don’t crush these nummy parts.

4. Form 2 inch balls with ice cream scoop and slightly flatten with bottom of a drinking glass dipped in water. Then add a few chips and pretzels atop of each cookie and  gently press into top of dough.  Chill in refrigerator for 2 hours.  THIS STEP IS CRUCIAL. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP!

5. Heat the oven to 350°.

6. On a parchment lined cookie sheet, place dough discs 3 inches apart and bake for approximately 17 minutes.  Cookie should have a darker edge and lighter center so the cookie with have both crunch and chew!

7. Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool completely on cookie sheets.

    Oh my Lord in heaven!!!! I have every ingredient here except the coffee grounds! Snowed in again. No coffee drinkers in my house hmmmm, do you think I could use my brewed Earl Grey tea bags?
    Regardless, I am making these for next Sunday’s “tea” that my friends and I are having for our little girls. I will have to borrow coffee grounds from a neighbor of something :-)

    Coop, I know everything you post is delish.
    Never had a bad recipe. But seriously,
    Coffee grounds? I don’t do coffee, so I would
    have to leave them out. What do they add,

    Kitchen Sink Cookies….HUGE, HUGE, HUGE hit with my friends at breakfast this morning. Came home with an empty pan. Shared them with my breakfast buddies, our server and even a couple of strangers. Customers that were sitting near by…trust Cooper when he says they are good, even with the used coffee grounds..he doesn’t tell stories. Thank you Cooper for sharing all your amazing recipes with us.
