Cowboy Cookie Recipe - AKA Get Super Fat Cause You Can't Stop Eating Them Cookie Recipe
My MaMa gave me a recipe she clipped from the newspaper years ago and I made it for the first time yesterday. I had wanted to many times before, but I never had all the ingredients on had. I guess the stars were aligned yesterday though because everything was in my cabinet. (Except the pecans and I didn't want those anyway.)
So here is the cookie recipe that makes the best cookies I've ever eaten in my life!
Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in bowl.
In 8-quart bowl, beat butter on medium speed till smooth and creamy, about 1 minute. Gradually beat in sugars and continue beating to combine, about 2 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each.
Beat in vanilla. Stir in flour mixture until just combined. Add chocolate chips, oats, coconut and pecans.
For each cookie, drop 1/4 cup of dough onto ungreased cookie sheet, spacing 3 inches apart. Bake 17 to 20 minutes, until edges are lightly browned. Remove to rack to cool.
**I made smaller cookies than the recipe instructs and I also took them out of the oven sooner so they wouldn't be crunchy. I like chewy cookies! This recipe makes a LOT of cookies so make sure you have a plan to either share them with neighbors or go to the store for stretchy pants. Your choice. I'm not saying what my choice was but I bet you can guess!**
