Chewy Cowboy Cookies

Cowboy Cookies

I love cowboy cookies. Mostly because they can basically be anything and everything thrown into one cookie. They are like the kitchen sink of desserts. A little bit of this, a little of that, and you have a delicious classic dessert.SONY DSC I made two dozen of these cookies last Thursday morning on the Fourth of July. I had three of them for breakfast…it was the perfect way to start the day. SONY DSCI used mini chocolate chips because it seemed like there is already enough “textury” ingredients in these cookies ie: coconut, pecans, etc., but I wanted that semi-sweet chocolate flavor.SONY DSC

There are also two whole cups of oats in this cookie which make them extra chewy 🙂 You know if you’re into that kind of thing. Hope you enjoy!

Chewy Cowboy Cookies

2 sticks of unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar

2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 (6-ounce) package mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup flaked unsweetened coconut

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, cream the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Add eggs and the vanilla and beat until well blended. Stir in the flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder.
