Everything but the Kitchen Sink Cookies
Everything but the Kitchen Sink Cookies

These cookies are my absolute favorite! They're similar to classic chocolate chip cookies, but with a twist that makes them "everything but the kitchen sink" cookies. The whole idea behind the name is that you can add in whatever sweets you can happen to have around your house. You throw in "everything but the kitchen sink." It all depends on your personal preference. So, follow the base of the recipe, but feel free to have fun with the extras!
