"Everything But The Kitchen Sink" Cookies

Oatmeal.. Chocolate Chip.. Marshmallow.. Walnut.. Cookies!  Found this recipe in Hometown Cooking by Julie Veith.  Not to much to say about these little guys.  The closest thing you can get to eating cookie dough.  They're chewy, gooey and fantastic!  Just look at the melting white marshmallows.  Heaven. 

What you'll need:

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 cups quick oats
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped walnuts
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Coat cookie sheets with nonstick spray, set aside.  In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt, set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high for 30 sec.  Add brown and granulated sugars.  Beat until combined.  Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined.  Beat in flour mixture.  Stir in oats, chocolate chips and walnuts.  Fold in the marshmallows.  Roll the dough into 1in. balls and place on the cookie sheet 2 in. apart.  Bake for 10 min. Let cool on the sheet for 2 min and transfer to a wire rack and let them cook completely.  Makes about 3 doz. 

I baked mine for 8 mins because I like a softer cookie.  Helpful hint... make sure you only have about 1 or 2 marshmallows in each ball and hide them in the center of the ball.  I found this helps the marshmallows stay better contained in the cookie instead of being exposed to the direct heat of the oven and spreading out into a messy spread out blob of a cookie!
