Garbage Cookies!

I know they sound super weird. Haha. But they are delicious! I originally got the inspiration to throw a bunch of weird ingredients into my cookies from Christina Tosi. (She's the head baker at Momofuku and the coolest person ever. )
Instead of using her recipe, I used my base cookie recipe and added a bunch of little mix ins.  And oh man, I gotta tell you, putting corn flakes into cookies, is absolute genius.

I threw in some pretzels, corn flakes, and mini chocolate chips. I think this photo is probably my favorite because you can see the pretzel and corn chips peeking through the dough!

2 Sticks of butter (softened)
1/2 cup sugar (3.5 oz)

1 1/3 cup brown sugar (11 oz)
2 eggs (room temp)
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 3/4 cup flour (12oz)
3/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
2 cups mini chocolate chips
1/4 cup pretzels or chips or both
1/2 cup corn flakes

Step 1- cream butter and both sugars till light and fluffy

Step 2- crack in eggs and beat until double in size (Tosi suggests to do this step for about 10 mins)

Step 3- Meanwhile, combine all the dry ingredients and then throw it into mixer once the egg, butter, and sugars are all ready. Mix until just combined. You want to undermix the batter because you are going to throw in the mix-ins. So, you want to see some flour. 

Step 4- Throw in all chocolate chips, corn flakes, pretzels, and whatever you would like in. Mix until just combined.

Step 5- Bake at 350 for 15-18 mins or until golden brown. Keep in mind that I used a massive ice cream scoop and my cookies only came out to about 16-18 cookies. So if you make them normal sized the cooking time will vary. Just make sure you keep an eye on them!

P.s.- I use ounces when I bake because it is a little more precise. So if you bake in ounces I put the conversion in parenthesis! :)
