Cowboy Cookies

I don’t know if you’ve had Cowboy Cookies, but they are chock full of goodies! Made with butter, flour and oats, they also contain nuts, chocolate chips and coconut for a real delicious treat. Some people make them a smaller size, like the picture above, where I measured the dough with a tablespoon. But very often I’ve seen them as a large cookie, where a 1/4 cup is used to measure the dough.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups (3 sticks) butter, at room temperature
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

PREPARATION

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in bowl.
  3. In a very large bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer at medium speed until smooth and creamy. Gradually beat in sugars, and combine thoroughly.
  4. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each. Beat in vanilla.
  5. Stir in flour mixture until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips, oats, coconut and pecans.
  6. For each cookie, drop 1/4 cup dough onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing 3 inches apart.
  7. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes, until edges are lightly browned; rotate sheets halfway through. Remove cookies from rack to cool.
