“Anything But The Kitchen Sink” Cookies

IMG_1142.jpg

These cookies were based on a recipe from The Silver Platter. I decided to add some extras to these, to make them an “anything but the kitchen sink cookie”. My first change was adding white chocolate (because it goes perfectly with craisins). After that I figured I should throw in some pecans to round out the cookie flavours. Lastly I decided to add pretzels because I love a good sweet and salty snack.

I made these because I wanted to bring a snack to my tutorial group. I saw the original recipe and I figured I would give it a shot. With these changes the cookies were very well received, so I highly recommend you give them a shot.

Ingredients:

3/4 cup vegetable oil
