Also known as “Everything Cookies” or “Kitchen Sink Cookies”, One Cup Cookies get their name from all the one cup measurements in the recipe. You’ll need one cup butter, one cup sugar, one cup brown sugar, one cup peanut butter, etc.
Thankfully you do not need a cup of baking soda! You only need a teaspoon of that, which is interesting since I’ve seen several versions of this cookie made with a full tablespoon. This recipe also calls for 1 cup of bran, which adds a bit of fiber and makes the cookies soft and chewy.
