Anything and Everything Cookies

If you're anything like me, you have a freezer or pantry full of random bags of baking supplies, from little bits of chocolate chips, to coconut, and a variety of chopped nuts.

I did a lot of baking at Christmas, and have had a bunch of odds and ends in the freezer that I've been wanting to get rid of, so I threw them all together the other day and made some delicious cookies.

There were mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, regular semi-sweet chocolate chips, mini white chocolate chips, Reese's PB chips, shredded coconut, and walnut pieces.

Anything and Everything Cookies

1 cup salted butter
3/4 cup packed golden brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1.5 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, unbleached
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup nuts, chopped
2.5 cups assorted chocolate chips/ coconut/ etc.

Cream together the butter and sugars.  Add vanilla.  Add eggs one at a time, mixing well.  In a separate bowl mix flour, baking soda, and salt.  Gradually add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and beat.  Stir in nuts and assorted chocolate chips.  Drop onto a parchment lined pan.  Bake for 10 minutes in an oven preheated to 375 F (second rack up from bottom).

Quick and easy cookies ... and now our freezer isn't so cluttered.

Do you have a freezer or pantry full of odds and ends?

Yummm that sounds delicious! I basically can't have chocolate chip cookies in my house I eat them WAY too quickly. I made some a couple weeks ago and froze them thinking that would keep me from eating them - NOPE! They are actually better frozen I think.

I'm so impressed that you can just throw cookies together with what you have in your freezer. But it totally makes sense that any sort of mix ins would work!

I have been trying to work through our pantry inventory, too. I made some protein balls this week which used up a bunch of random stuff!
