Everything Cookies from the Pioneer Woman are Delicious! They are a GREAT BREAKFAST COOKIE!
Ingredients for Everything Cookies:
3 sticks room temperature butter (1 1/2 cups) I USED HALF BUTTER HALF COCONUT OIL.
2 C. firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 1/2 C. sugar
1 T. vanilla
4 large whole eggs
4 heaping cups flour MINE WERE MORE WELL ROUNDED.
4 t. baking soda
1 t. kosher salt
3 C. granola I USED SWISS GRANOLA WITH HAZELNUTS FROM SAM'S CLUB.
1 heaping cup oats I USED OLD FASHIONED.
1 1/2 C. rough chop dried apricots
1 C. rough chop dried sour cherries (You can use sweet if you prefer.)
1 C. rough chop pecans
1/2 C. golden raisins I USED DARK RAISINS BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT I HAD ON HAND.
Optional: Sugar for dipping cookie scoop into between dips of the dough. This keeps the dough from sticking in the scoop and lends a further crisping to the finished cookie.
Cream the butter/and or coconut oil and sugars. Add the vanilla and eggs, Next the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the granola and oats. Mix well and stir in the fruit and nuts.
Refrigerate the dough 2 hours until firm, I often leave it overnight in a big plastic sack. Ree Drummond does NOT do this but I like a taller cookie and it is much easier for me to make uniform sizes with a stiffer batter but it is not mandatory.
I packed into large plastic zipper bags and plastic bins with tight fitting lids.
