Be sure to use natural peanut butter that's just peanuts and salt. This is a thick dough so you can roll the balls by hand or use a large melon scoop. Use whole wheat pastry flour if you like bit if it makes the dough is too thick, add 2 tablespoons of water. - Jenny Jones

      When you put a bunch of different things together people often say, “They put in everything but the kitchen sink!” Since these cookies have a bunch of different ingredients, I called them “Kitchen Sink” cookies.
