Peter Kavinsky Kitchen Sink Cookie


To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before was one of my favorite book series as a teen librarian.  (Now, one of my favorite Netflix movies.) Lara Jean and Peter are one of the most adorable couples to exist in the young adult cannon. It’s saccharin and makes you feel good- just like a warm cookie and snuggling on the couch.

Lara Jean loves to bake.  She loves making those around her feel loved through food.  I feel the same way.  I think Ben fell in love with because of a blueberry muffin. I assume that the sweetness of a delicious baked good, made Peter Kavinsky fall in love with Lara Jean even harder.  These savory-sweet “kitchen sink” cookie are the perfect thing to pair with some cozy reading or re-watching a Netflix rom-com for the eighth time.

Recipe makes approximately 36 cookies

  • 2 1/2 c. all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 c. white sugar, plus 2 tbsp. set aside
  • 1/2 c. packed brown sugar
  • 1 c. unsalted butter softened, plus 1 tbsp. set aside
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 c. roughly chopped salted mini-pretzels, plus more for decorating
  • 1 1/4 c. corn flakes
  • 1 c. dark chocolate chips

  1. Heat oven to 350F.
  2. Melt one tablespoon butter. Mix corn flakes, melted butter, and 2 tablespoons white sugar in a bowl. Spread mixture on lined baking sheet and bake in oven for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. If they start to smell like toast, they are done. Set aside to cool.fullsizeoutput_c0c
  3. In medium bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking soda.  Set aside.
  4. In separate bowl, use hand mixer to cream butter and remaining white and brown sugar.  Once butter and sugar are  thoroughly combined, add eggs one at a time until smooth.  Add vanilla and combine.
  5. Slowly add flour mixture to the butter mixture until thoroughly combined.
  6. Now add each of the remaining dried ingredients, including the baked corn flakes, to the dough, one at a time.  Wait until each ingredient is combined before adding the next.
  7. Heat oven to 375F.
  8. Line baking sheets and drop cookies onto the baking sheet.  If decorating with pretzels, gently press them into the top of the dough.
  9. Bake for 9-11 minutes until lightly browned on top, but still soft.
