I like to think of this recipe like a choose-your-own adventure for cookie lovers. The cookie dough base is ready for you to pick your favorite, perfectly-measured mix-ins and create a custom batch of cookies. Like my Mix Your Own Cookie Magic and my 6-in-1 Sheet Pan Cookie Bars, this One Cookie Dough with Seven Possible Flavors recipe lets you create a crowd-pleasing array of delicious cookies in one baking session. My kids love mixing up their favorite flavors and everybody gets exactly what they want.

The Perfect Cookie Dough Base!

First, preheat the oven to 350°F and line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Now let’s mix up the cookie dough base!

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the 1 and 1/2 cups butter and sugars until well combined. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.

With the mixer on low speed, beat in the flour, baking soda, and salt until combined.

The base recipe makes about 4 cups of cookie dough. You should be able to get 84 small cookies (1 tablespoon sized scoops) or 42 medium cookies (2 tablespoon sized scoops) or 21 large cookies (3 tablespoon sized scoops).

Seven Possible Flavors

With seven delicious flavors to choose from, you can make a single flavor or all seven. Your choose-your-own cookie adventure starts with these yummy options:

  1. Chocolate Chip
  2. Peanut Butter
  3. Oatmeal Cranberry Pecan
  4. White Chocolate Macadamia Nut 
  5. Monster Cookies
  6. Snickerdoodle
  7. Chocolate Chocolate Chip

A few quick tips for each flavor before we get started:

  • Chocolate Chip: There’s no need to press down on the cookie dough balls before baking. Just scoop and bake!
  • Peanut Butter: Before baking, use a long pronged fork to flatten each cookie dough ball slightly, then turn the fork going the opposite direction and flatten just slightly again. This will create that classic criss cross pattern on the peanut butter cookies as they bake.
  • Oatmeal Cranberry Pecan: Gently press down with your hand to flatten each ball of cookie dough slightly before baking. If desired, sprinkle each cookie with a little flaky sea salt right baking for a fabulous sweet and salty flavor.
  • White Chocolate Macadamia Nut: Press down gently with your hand to flatten each ball of cookie dough slightly before baking.
  • Monster Cookies: Before baking, gently press down with your hand to flatten each ball of cookie dough slightly.
  • Snickerdoodle: With the cinnamon and sugar mix-ins recommended, combine them first and then just mix half of the cinnamon sugar mixture into the cookie dough. Reserve the other half to roll the cookie dough balls in before placing them on the cookie sheet to bake. No need to press down on the cookie dough balls before baking.
  • Chocolate Chocolate Chip: Gently press down with your hand to flatten each ball of cookie dough slightly before baking

I’ve done all the cookie math, so once you know how many flavors you’ll be making, simply follow directions below. You’ll get the correct mix-in measurements based on number of flavors to equally divided dough ratios.

Mix and Bake!

Once you have your dough divided into separate mixing bowls, add the mix-ins for each flavor and combine. You can use a spoon or rubber spatula, but I’ve found that clean, dry hands work best at blending the dry ingredients with the dough.

After your mix-ins and dough are well combined, scoop dough onto the parchment-lined cookie sheets a few inches apart. If you’re making small cookies, scoop 1 tablespoon of dough per cookie. Scoop 2 tablespoons dough per cookie for medium cookies. To make large cookies, scoop 3 tablespoons of dough per cookie. Click here for my favorite cookie scoop set. Garnish each cookie dough scoop with additional toppings for that flavor, if desired.

Bake for 8-10 minutes, rotating cookie sheets halfway through, until cookies are starting to crisp around the edges are just set on top. Try not to over-bake them if you want them to be chewy.

Finally, remove cookies from the oven and let them cool on the cookie sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Let cool completely and enjoy!
