Garbage Cookies


So...I'm not sure how I feel about the name of these cookies: Garbage Cookies?  For real?  Then I realized that these cookies actually come with many names.  Monster cookies, Everything cookies, Kitchen Cupboard Cookies.  Many names, and also many recipes to make the same cookie.  I found this one on  I like that she starts out with a basic oatmeal cookie recipe and then makes it her own. 

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups whole oats
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In medium bowl sift flour, baking
  3. soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and all spice. In separate large
  4. bowl, cream together shortening, brown sugar, and white sugar until
  5. fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Combine well.
  6. Add flour mixture to wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Then add oats, cranberries, and chocolate if you so desire.
  7. Use 1/4 cup and scoop onto cookie sheet... you should get about 6 per sheet.
