Everything But the Kitchen Sink Cookies

These are some of the most delicious cookies. They are just like Panera’s kitchen sink cookies. In fact, I bought one not long ago and it was absolutely delicious.

So, I thought, why can’t I make this at home? And, that’s what I did and so can you.

The fun thing about these cookies is that you can trade out ingredients. If you’d like to add butterscotch chips instead, you can do that. Feel free to experiment a little!

And, these will really impress at the yearly holiday cookie exchange.
