Everything but the Kitchen Sink

Jennifer S


This cookie recipe is delicious and really very easy. I used raisins, coconut, walnuts, dried figs, dried apricots, and semi sweet chocolate chips, emptied out whatever I had left over. This is a very forgiving recipe and was a big hit with my family and friends. Even the kids came back for more.
