Kitchen Sink Cookies

These cookies are a family favourite and are absolutely delicious!!! Packed with everything except the "kitchen sink" . . .

Kitchen Sink Cookies (adapted from Martha Stewart)
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons light corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chunks
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or other nuts
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, nutmeg and baking soda.
  3. Using an electric mixer, beat together butter, sugar, corn syrup, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until well incorporated. Gradually beat flour mixture into butter mixture just until combined.
  4. With a rubber spatula, fold in chocolate chunks, raisins, pecans, and oats.
  5. Drop 2-inch balls of dough, spaced 2 inches apart, onto baking sheets. Flatten slightly. Bake 12 to 16 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned, rotating sheets halfway through.
  6. Cool 5 minutes on sheets; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
