Six-in-One Cookies

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    Add-ins:

  • 1/2 square unsweetened chocolate, melted
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup candied cherries, cut in small pieces

Six-in-One Cookies start with one dough and six add-ins: clockwise from top left, raisin, spice, candied cherry, pecan, chocolate and coconut. All recipes are from "Jane's Favorite Cookie Recipes." (Darrell Sapp, Post-Gazette)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream butter and gradually add sugars. Beat thoroughly with electric mixer. Add egg and vanilla. Continue creaming until light and fluffy. Sift flour, soda and salt together. Add gradually to creamed mixture. Divide dough into 6 equal portions, about 1/2 cup per portion. To one portion add chocolate, coconut to another, raisins to one, pecans to one, cinnamon and nutmeg to another, and cherries to the last.

Drop from teaspoon onto greased cookie sheets (we used parchment paper), about 3 inches apart. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

Yield: 4 dozen 1 1/2-inch cookies.

Note: We portioned the dough with a small cookie scoop and each type made 8 or 9 cookies. We recommend doubling the recipe, starting with 1 pound of butter and then there would be cookies for the workplace and the teacher.
