Originally titled Everything-but-the-Kitchen-Sink Cookies, we re-named them Back-to-School Cookies in honor of our baking mission. The original recipe included chocolate chips, coconut, oats, crisp rice cereal (Special K), but, in lieu of nuts, we decided to add dried apricots and dried cherries. Perfect!

Prep: 15 min
Total Time: 43 min
Yield: 36 cookies



  • Cream the butter and sugars in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well in between. Mix in the vanilla extract. Add the flours, baking soda and salt. Mix until fully incorporated. Stir in the rice cereal, coconut, rolled oats, apricots, cherries and chocolate chunks. Scoop the dough into large tablespoon-sized portions onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake in a 350ºF oven for 9-11 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the middles are slightly soft. Allow the cookies to cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheets and then remove to wire racks to finish cooling.
