Garbage Disposal Cookies

Best (and only) garbage I’ve ever eaten! I switched the recipe up quite a bit to suit my family’s likes and you can do the same too. I can’t wait to try them again with a different combo of mix-ins.

2 1/2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter, softened

2/3 cup packed brown sugar

1/3 cup sugar

1/2 cup peanut butter or any nut butter or I used Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter which was delicious

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 egg

2 – 4 tablespoons milk, the original recipe doesn’t call for any milk but my batter was really dry so I added 2 tablespoons of milk to help it bind together

8 Oreos cookies, broken up into large pieces, about 1 cup

8 standard size Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, chopped into large pieces, about 1 cup or any preferred chocolate candy – (I used an extra large Symphony Bar, chopped into large pieces which was a little more than 1 cup)

1/3 cup white chocolate chips (I didn’t add any chocolate chips since my Symphony Bar was quite big)

1 Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.

2 Cream butter, brown sugar, and sugar for 5 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add peanut butter, vanilla, and egg and beat until combined.

3 Add flour mixture, a bit at a time, just until incorporated. Add milk if needed. Mix in Oreos, chocolate candy, and chocolate chips by hand. Cover bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

4 Preheat oven to 375.

5 Scoop dough using cookie scoop and flatten slightly with hand on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake 12 – 15 minutes then transfer to wire racks to cool.

  2. These sound so good but there’s something off in this recipe, butter to flour ratio? My dough was extremely dry and crumbly. Will have to see if I can fix the remainder of the dough some how. I’ll move on and maybe look for a similar recipe.
