COWBOY COOKIES Recipe



I love cookies, and I love cowboys. So this recipe is the perfect cookie for me :-D

I make these cookies using an ice cream scoop to drop them on the baking sheet. That significantly decreases the output, but to me it is worth it to have a larger cookie ;-) An ice cream scoop will make about 4 dozen cookies – significantly smaller output than the original recipe promises.

If you stick to the recipe, you will get a larger batch of smaller sized cookies.

COWBOY COOKIES Recipe ~ Makes 11 dozen cookies

2 c. sifted Flour * 1 tsp. baking Soda * ½ tsp. Salt * ½ tsp. Baking Powder * 1 c. Shortening * 1 c. granulated Sugar * 1 c. Brown Sugar (firmly packed) * 2 Eggs * 2 c. rolled Oats * 1 tsp. Vanilla * 1 pkg. semisweet Chocolate Chips

Sift flour, soda, salt, and baking powder together; set aside.

Blend shortening and sugars together:


Add eggs – beat until light and fluffy.

Add flour mixture, oats, vanilla, and chips. Blend well:


Dough will be crumbly. Drop by teaspoons onto greased baking sheet:

I baked a dozen, and put the rest in the freezer to solidify before bagging/freezing them in dozen size portions for future enjoyment.

If you use an ice cream scoop be sure to space the cookies pretty far apart on the baking sheet – they will spread.

Bake at 350-degrees for 15 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
