The Everything Bagel Cookie recipe might just be one of the most unique cookie recipes I’ve ever made. Not only are these cookies made with a homemade twist on the Everything but the Bagel seasoning mix, they’re also everything you want in a cookie, including chocolate!
I love Everything Bagels, and I wanted to somehow work them into a sweet cookie — to enjoy this delicious seasoning blend in a different, but equally tasty way.
You might be thinking The Everything Bagel Cookie recipe is similar to a Kitchen Sink Cookie recipe. You know, the cookies you throw everything into (M & M’s, oats, raisins, nuts, etc.)?
Think the Everything Bagel in the form of a cookie, BUT . . . .
Think the Everything Bagel without the garlic and onion.
Think Everything Bagel without the garlic and onion meets a chocolate chip cookie.
If you’re skeptical, I get it — so was I. Don’t be. Trust me.
This recipe idea came to me just in time for a Los Angeles Food Blogger holiday event.
When I pulled them out of the oven, I thought either they’d be brilliant — or — they’d be too weird (for lack of a better word), and I’d have to come up with another idea super quickly for the party.
Fortunately, they were brilliant, and I loved them. I mean, really, really loved them. They’re definitely one of the most unique cookie recipes I’ve made — and one of the best!
And unless they just ate every last one of them to be kind, they were a big hit among my fellow food bloggers, too.
What’s in Everything but the Bagel Seasoning Mix
Unlike curry blends, which seem to have dozens of variations — the Everything but the Bagel Seasoning Mix doesn’t vary too much from recipe to recipe, or bagel to bagel.
Typically the Everything Bagel Seasoning Mix includes: poppy seeds, sesame seeds, onion, garlic and salt. I’ve also had many Everything bagels that include caraway seeds.
My Everything Bagel Cookie Mix includes:
- poppy seeds
- sesame seeds
- brown sugar
I left out the onion and garlic, and added chocolate and brown sugar. (Not a bad trade!)
You can use black or white sesame seeds.
What’s else is in the Everything Bagel Cookie Recipe?
- olive oil
- brown sugar
- all-purpose flour, baking soda, salt
- semisweet chocolate
And when I say, “they’re everything you want in a cookie,” it’s because they’re sweet, salty, chewy, crisp, and so-over-the-top delicious!
I really hope you try my Everything Bagel Cooke recipe. They are definitely one of my new favorite cookies of all time!
The Everything Bagel Cookie Recipe
*Makes about 3½ dozen, depending on the size of the cookies. (See recipe instruction no. 4)
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Add the olive oil, sugar, vanilla, salt and egg to a large mixing bowl. Mix everything together until it's smooth.
- Add the flour and baking soda and mix just until you no longer still see dry spots. (Do not over mix!)
- Fold in the hazelnuts and chocolate chunks or chips.
- Shape the cookie dough into balls, about 1 generous tablespoon each. Place them on the parchment-lined baking sheet as you go. (They can be close together and should all fit on one sheet.) Set aside.
For the coating
- Add the poppy seeds, sesame seeds, salt and sugar to a small bowl. Mix until everything is evenly blended.
- Now roll each prepared ball of dough into this mixture, coating it on all sides -- you don't want to see the dough when you're done. As you coat them, place each one back onto the same parchment-lined baking sheet.
- Wrap the baking sheet tightly in plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours, and ideally overnight.
- Then preheat the oven to 350°F, and line another baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Once the oven is preheated, remove the other baking sheet from the refrigerator.
- With about 2-inches between them, add the coated dough balls to the new parchment-lined baking sheet.
- Bake in the preheated 350°F oven just until the cookies are no longer doughy and edges are slightly golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Repeat until you've baked all of the cookies.
- Let them sit on the baking sheet for a couple of minutes, then let them cool on a baking rack.
