JW's Cowgirl Cookies

This is my "round 'em up" version of the classic Cowboy cookie. If you like a chewy, nutty, yummy cookie....look no further. Lasso up a batch of these tonight and you won't be sorry.

JW's Cowgirl Cookies

Makes about 5 dozen.

Vegetable cooking spray
2-1/4 C. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 sticks of butter, softened
1/2 C. granulated sugar
1 C. brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1-1/2 C. old fashioned oats
4 oz. semisweet chocolate chips
1 C. pecan halves
3/4 C. shredded coconut
approx. 1/2 bag of heath bits


1. Put some Old Willie Nelson in the stereo and don on your cowgirl hat. (if Brian's around, you could ask him to perform his famous rendition of "On the Road Again". It's good. REAL good.) As soon as you start feeling like a real cowgirl, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Stir together flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder into a medium bowl.

2. Beat butter and sugars with a mixer on medium-high until pale and creamy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs one at a time and beat well after each. Beat in vanilla.

3. Add flour mixture and mix just until combined. Add oats, chocolate, heath bits, pecans, and coconut and mix until completely combined.

4. Drop by teaspoon onto prepared sheet. Space about 3 inches apart.

5. Bake until edges are brown, around 8-10 minutes. Watch closely! Transfer sheet to wire rack and let cool.

I so love your instructions-- not just the tip on getting cow-girly, but the good details. I need those kind of directions. You must be such a good teacher! Liv and Holland are two fortunate girls! I am pretty sure this could be my favorite cookie ever just be the ingredients, but I'm going to need to taste them first. Feel free to drop them by anytime.
