Cowboy Cookies

Oh my word! This recipe is to. die. for! It's so delicious, it doesn't need a picture. I bet you can't eat just 10!!!

3 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups butter or margarine, softened

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla

3 eggs

3 cups chocolate chips

3 cups oats

2 cups flaked coconut

2 cups chopped pecans (optional, but you REALLY REALLY want to add them!)

In a bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, beat butter until smooth and creamy. Gradually beat in sugars and vanilla. Add eggs and beat well. Add flour mixture and stir just until combined. Add chocolate chips, oats, coconut, and pecans. If you haven't already eaten all of the cookie dough, form 2" balls and place onto a greased baking sheet (or sheet with parchment paper...easier clean-up!). Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. It should make about 6 dozen cookies. Now hurry and get them out of the house, because trust me--you WILL eat them all if given the opportunity!


  1. You are so right...I can't stop eating the dough! I had to stick half of it in the freezer. It makes a ton! These may be the best cookies I have ever had. Thanks for sharing!
