Today I’m resurrecting this post from the way way back of my archives, and giving it to you all with a brand new look.

Life is crazy, as usual, and I’m still working out the kinks in my new schedule. I’m working almost full time at CoSchedule now, which has been such an amazing experience! I seriously never imagined myself LOVING a job as much as I love this one. It is a product that I was crazy for right off the bat, and my love of it has only grown as I become more proficient with it, and learn more and more about it.

Seriously, do you know how amazing it is to work for a company you would gladly cheerlead for for free? It is awesome. For you fellow CoSchedulers out there, get ready for some food-blog-specific tutorials coming out soon. If you aren’t yet a CoSchedule user and you have a WordPress blog you need to check it out. It changed the way I do this, for the better. I couldn’t blog without it, at this point.

EVERYTHING cookies

Back to the cookies – these are a mish-mash of amazing cookie recipes that have become a favorite around here. I thought that oatmeal chocolate chip butterscotch peanut butter cookies was a little long though, so they were deemed “EVERYTHING cookies”.

EVERYTHING Cookies
If you want your cookies to have chips on top, press a few onto the dough after you place it on the baking sheets.

That does a lot to give them the bakery-like appearance that you see all over the blogging world.

I originally published this recipe back in October of 2011. I love to redo recipes because it really shows me how far I’ve come in my imagery! Check out this photo that I took way back then….with a dSLR.

Fantastic recipe - just made two batches to mail to college students. Thought they’d be hearty for Finals fuel…don’t be deceived by slightly sticky dough. And the recipe is generous and made more like 32 cookies, instead of the stated 24. (Next time I’ll cut the sugars back and maybe throw in some walnuts as a healthy hack). It’s a winner though! 👍👍

Thanks for the feedback! I agree the recipe is generous. We also tend to make larger cookies too. That might have something to do with it! I hope your college students enjoy them!

I use regular most often, but have subbed in quick cooking successfully on occasion.

Could this cookie dough be freezer friendly?

It should be! I haven't tried it, but I've frozen similar cookie doughs successfully before. Let me know if you try it!
