Cowboy Cookie Recipe: not just for cowboys

I saw the recipe for Cowboy Cookies on Facebook. Social media is a great way to get new recipes and after baking my first batch of Cowboy Cookies, I am glad it is. 

After seeing the initial recipe for Cowboy Cookies, I was curious to how many the recipe made. Googling the Cowboy Cookie recipe I discovered there were many sites with a recipe; however, the only thing that was consistent was the main ingredients. The walnuts, coconut, pecans and or raisins were different and or even optional.

Knowing my husband and daughter do not like coconut made that choice easier; no coconut here. I love all the options; therefore, I attempted to make them as the recipe I came across had.
I suddenly ran into a snag as the walnuts I had tasted bad, I had clearly had them far too long so into the trash they went. Seeing the pecans in the refrigerator drawer, and I really like them better, pecans now where part of our Cowboy Cookies I was making to give away.

Ingredients for Cowboy Cookies:

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½  tsp salt
  • ½  tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1 cup  chocolate chips
  • 1 cup crushed walnuts or pecans as I used

Instructions to make Cowboy Cookies:


1.     Preheat the oven 350 degree Fahrenheit.
2.     Cream together the butter and sugars; add the eggs and mix well.
3.     Add the vanilla, baking soda, salt, and baking powder.
4.     Mix in the flour and oatmeal and after all is blended; add the chocolate chips and walnuts or pecans.
5.     Drop by large spoon on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
6.     Bake at 350 degrees for 12-16 minutes. 

**The baking time will vary on how big you make your Cowboy Cookies. I got 2 dozen per batch so they are fairly large and baking time longer.
