You'll find everything in these cookies except the kitchen sink. Thanks to TURPTOO for posting this recipe, which we love to have with our other Christmas cookies.

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 13 minutes

Total Time: 38 minutes

Yield: Dozens


  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup vegetable oil*
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3-1/3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tarter
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup quick-cooking** oats
  • 1 cup rice krispies
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 cup raisins***
  • 1 cup chopped pecans****


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease 2 cookies sheets. Cream butter oil and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time. Then add vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, cream of tarter and baking soda with wire whisk. Gradually stir into creamed mixture. Stir in remaining ingredients. Drop by level tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on cookies sheets. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes or until browned. Cool on sheet for 2 minutes. Remove to wire rack for complete cooling. Makes about 12 dozen.

Notes in the Margin:
The last time I made these cookies, I used up any leftover amounts of chips from my cookie-baking drawer in the pantry. There was a little of each of these types of chips: white, mini semi-sweet chocolate, dark chocolate, butterscotch chips and milk chocolate.
*Also, when I made these Kitchen Sink Cookies, they were a little on the greasy-side. Next time, I will make them with all butter, and no oil.
**I prefer the texture of regular oats.
***I don't care for raisins so typically I use twice the amount of nuts.
****I lightly toasted my pecans.
