I was looking for a quick treat for my hubby on a cold winter day and started throwing ingredients into the bowl. Hence the name 'kitchen sink.'

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Beat sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla extract together in a bowl until fluffy. Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl. Stir flour mixture into butter mixture. Stir in pecans, butterscotch chips, chocolate chips, and cranberries.

  • Drop cookie dough by rounded teaspoons onto an ungreased baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden brown and set, 8 to 10 minutes.

Cook's Note:

For more of a cookie than cake texture, omit baking powder. Any type of nuts can be used, I chose pecans. Raisins can be substituted for the dried cranberries.
