Martha Stewart’s Kitchen Sink Cookies

200 grams softened butter
1,25 dl sugar
1,25 dl brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 dl flour
5 dl oats
5 dl chocolate chips
Around 5 dl your own additions (raisins, nuts, dates, coconut flakes, marshmallows etc)

In a large bowl with a wooden spoon, beat butter, sugar and brown sugar together until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until well blended. In another bowl, mix together all dry ingredients and add to the dough. Finally add oats, chocolate chips and other chosen additions.

Measure chunks the size of a tablespoon of the batter onto the baking tray. Press tops down with the bottom of a glass to flatten cookies evenly and make sure to have some space between the cookies.

Bake in 180 degrees for 15-18 minutes, until golden. Let the cookies cool down on the tray for some minutes before moving. Enjoy with a hot Christmas drink or wrap up as a present!

Tip! A Christmas feel can be added to the cookies by adding some cinnamon to the batter!
