Trish’s Take 7 Cookie

Hoping for better Christmas gifts this year?  Try putting out better cookies!  Here is a recipe guaranteed to keep the fat man singing your praises long into the New Year.  I modeled this cookie after a “Take 5” candy bar.  But then I got a little carried away, so it’s a Take 7 cookie.  And every bite is a new adventure.

Trish’s Take 7 Cookie

2 sticks softened, unsalted butter
1 teaspoon salt
¾ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 ½ cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
chocolate chips
butterscotch chips
peanut butter chips
caramel bits
coconut
miniature marshmallows
pretzels, crushed

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a small bowl, sift together flour and baking soda.

Using a stand or hand mixer, mix together butter, sugars and salt.  Once combined, turn speed to medium high and whip until light and fluffy (around 5 minutes).  Turn speed to medium low and mix in eggs, one at a time, until fully incorporated, scraping down sides of bowl after each addition.  Mix in vanilla.  Turn speed to low and stir in flour/baking soda, a little at a time until mixture is fully combined.

In a small bowl, place 6 each of the baking chips/bits and marshmallow, a pinch of coconut and a pinch of crushed pretzels.  Form cookie dough into 2 tablespoon balls, flatten, place the chips/bits/coconut/pretzel mixture in the middle of the cookie, then reform cookie into a ball.  Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Repeat with the rest of the cookie dough.  Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the bottom edges and top lumps start to brown.  Remove from oven.  Let rest at least 10 minutes before eating unless your mouth is made of Kevlar.
