Everything Cookies Recipe

Everything Cookies are another great cookie to put in your children's lunch box or have as an after school snack. They combine a chocolate chip cookie with an oatmeal cookie. In fact, they are much more than that as they have just about everything in them - hence the name. They are sweet and buttery and full of nuts, chocolate chips, raisins, coconut, and oatmeal. I have been making these cookies for years and they are an adaptation from a couple of Canadian cookbooks; Marion Kane's 'The Best of Food' from The Toronto Star and the 'That's Trump - The Best of Bridge'.

  

There is always the question of what type of rolled oats to use in baking; old-fashioned or quick-cooking. Both start with oats that are cleaned, toasted, and hulled to become what we call oat groats. The difference between the two is in the thickness of the oats after the oat groats have been steamed and flattened. Old-fashioned rolled oats are thicker because to make quick-cooking rolled oats the oat groats are first cut into pieces before being steamed and flattened. Either one can be used in this recipe, although I do recommend using old-fashioned rolled oats as I prefer their thicker texture and better flavor. 
 

To toast nuts: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) and toast nuts for 8-10 minutes until lightly browned and fragrant. Let cool and then chop into pieces. Set aside. 

Increase the oven temperature to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. 

In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), beat the butter and sugars until creamy and smooth (about 2 - 3 minutes). Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and rolled oats. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture and beat just until incorporated (the batter will be sticky). Stir in the nuts, raisins, coconut, and chocolate chips. 

Drop the batter by tablespoonfuls (can use a small ice cream scoop) onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing the cookies about 2 inches (5 cm) apart. Flatten the cookies slightly with your fingers so they are about 1/2 inch (1.25 cm) thick. Bake the cookies for about 10 minutes or until golden brown around the edges. The longer the cookies bake the more crisp in texture they will be. Remove from oven and let the cookies cool a few minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to cool.

Makes about 48 cookies.
