There's a reason people love everything bagels: you don't have to choose which delicious, crunchy topping will adorn your daily weekend carb splurge. The same principle of "more is more" can be applied to cookies, too. Why not pack everything you possibly can into your few glorious bites? Right? These Everything Cookies mash almost every type of cookie you know and love into one supercookie. Oats, peanut butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, chocolate chips, walnuts, raisins, and pretzel bits satisfy every possible dessert craving in the book. Seriously, this treat has everything. It's like one of Stefon's clubs, in cookie form.

Whisk oats, flour, baking soda, spices, and salt in a large bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat butter, peanut butter, and sugars in another large bowl on medium speed until combined. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until completely smooth. With mixer on low speed, gradually add dry ingredients and mix just to combine. Stir in chocolate chips, raisins, walnuts, and pretzels. Wrap dough in plastic and chill for at least 2 hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 350°. Coat baking sheets with nonstick spray. Using a spoon, drop rounded tablespoonfuls of dough about 2" apart onto prepared baking sheets (12-14 cookies should fit on each sheet). Bake cookies until golden brown, 15-17 minutes; transfer to wire racks and let cool.
