Carol posted this recipe and I wanted to bring cookies to the in-laws when we visited. I had all the ingredients, except the coconut which is never in the house. Didn't have chocolate chips but did have a bag of peanut butter chips which I used in place of the chocolate.
Gabe's parents live in a huge apartment complex. A nurse is on call 24 hours and they have activities to keep them busy. I knew if I made a large tin my MIL could share with her friends.

The real name of the cookies -A-Z Everything But The Kitchen Sink Chocolate Chip Cookies. Carol adapted the recipe from Cookin with Love @ Tasty Kitchen
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

1 12 ounce package semisweet chocolate chips**
1 cup chopped walnuts ( didn't add)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or spray with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda,salt and cinnamon and set aside.
In a large bowl ( used my kitchen aid mixer) cream the butter and the sugars until light. Add the eggs,one at a time.Add the milk and the vanilla, mix until combined.
Slowly add the flour mixture, stirring until well blended. Stir in the cornflakes, oats, coconut, chocolate chips and nuts.
Roll dough into a ball the size of a walnut. Place on prepared pan
Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on cookie sheet 5 minutes before moving to a wire rack.
Makes about 5 dozen
* I don't like coconut so it's never in the house.
** I didn't have chocolate chips so I used peanut butter chips.
As you can tell by the photo, my in-laws loved them!
