Everything Cookies

Adaleen Clark


These are different every week, depending on what I have to put in them. You can put whatever you want into them, that's what makes them "Everything"! Fill up the measurement amounts with nuts, chocolate chips, coconut, candy, wheat germ, dried cranberries, raisins... well, EVERYTHING! If times are lean, you can leave out most of the "good stuff" and still have great cookies. All we had this time was Josiah's stash of dollar store sixlet candies, but you can see these cookies are still bountiful!

pinch tips: How to Melt and Soften Butter



24 or so


1 c
butter or margarine
1 c
white sugar
1 c
packed brown sugar
1 c
vegetable oil
3 1/2 c
1 c
rolled oats
1 c
generic rice krispies
1 c
coconut (or another ingredient like it)
1 c
nuts (or granola)
1 c
chocolate chips, or candy, or what have you?
1 tsp
1 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

I just put all the ingredients in a bowl and let clean-handed children just mush and squish it all together. Drop on greased cookie sheets in amounts about the size of a walnut (meaning, 'the size of walnuts still in the shell').
Bake at 350F for 10-15 minutes. Our stove is unpredictable at times, based on what we're burning for fuel, so I keep a pretty close eye on them. When they're brownish and smell good, take them out!
Let cool for a few moments before removing from baking sheets. These are our "treat" cookies, I hope you enjoy them!
