The Everything Cookie

Guess what time it is?
Cookie Time

The countdown until the Christmas Holidays has begun
and so has the great cookie baking!
For my first cookie of the season we have -

The Everything Cookie.

There are many different variations to this cookie
so don't be afraid to use what you have in the pantry.

1 cup granola
1 cup golden raisins
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup chopped nut of your choice
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl, toss in granola, raisins, rolled oats, chocolate chips,
peanut butter chips and walnuts; set aside.

In a small bowl, sift flour, baking soda, baking powder,
salt and whisk together.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the granulated
and dark brown sugar. Add a few pieces of butter at
a time and beat until smooth and creamy.
Add vanilla and beat in the eggs, one at time.
Mix in flour mixture until just combined.

Add the granola, raisins and chips and mix well together by hand.
Working with a generous 2 tablespoons of dough each time,
roll the dough into 2-inch balls.

Place the balls onto baking sheets, spacing them at least 2 inches apart.
Bake until the cookie edges turn golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.

Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 2 -3 minutes .Remove and let cool.
Makes about 3 dozen cookies

MMM, Good!
