Cakery Friday: Kitchen Sink Cookies

I love the name of these cookies, because seriously, they can include everything BUT the kitchen sink. I made mine with pecans, almonds, chocolate chips, dried cranberries and a few M & M’s, but really, you can throw anything in ‘em! {maybe you even have some leftover halloween candy?!?!}

In the bowl of your electric mixer beat together 1 stick of unsalted butter {room temperature} with 1/2 cup of tightly packed brown sugar and 6 tablespoons of sugar until light and fluffy. Add in 1 large egg and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, beat to combine.
