Kitchen Sink Cookies

We love cookies we can customize, which is why we love Kitchen Sink Cookies from Amber, Red Tricycle's Managing Editor. She writes, "Years ago another mom passed this idea on to me and I make them every year. She called them Kitchen Sink cookies. Just take a basic oatmeal raisin cookie recipe and amp it up by adding craisins, coconut, nuts and chocolate chips. You usually have to increase the liquid by a few tablespoons, especially if you use shredded coconut, but they are pretty hard to get wrong and really easy to make with kids. Omit the nuts or add chopped dried apricots to change it up." Click here to grab the recipe.
