Nuts or No Nuts!

We are lucky enough not to have nut allergies in our home, you can just leave them out.

I usually split the dough in half, add a few nuts just for me because no one else likes nuts.

I always substitute the nuts for another kind of chip, even white chocolate chips are great in this dough.

You can also substitute the nuts with sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds or another seed you like.

You can use any nuts you prefer, like, peanuts, almonds, cashews or walnuts.

These have pecans in them which is the original style recipe called for.

Coconut is my Favorite!

I loved more coconut, you can adjust the quantities more or less or what you like.

I did make a mistake one time and didn’t realize I grabbed the wrong Chocolate chips.

They were mint chocolate, no one was a fan of those, sigh.

This truly is a terrific tasting cookie that can stand tall with pride.

The chewiness from the oats, the of course, the outer layer of crispness from the shortening and butter make this a unique style cookie.

The “Cowboy Cookie” name, I came across some very interesting history regarding this recipe, which included some of our First Ladies favorites, like Laura Bush.

Apparently, there were many cookie recipes that were printed throughout the years, with many different stories that were told how they came about.

Best Cowboy Cookies

prep time: 12 min cook time: 12 min total time: 24 mins
This is a popular cookie loaded with nuts, coconut, oats, and chocolate. I have tried many recipes, this one I adapted through the many I’ve read through and found it to be my best cookie recipe ever for Cowboy Cookies.

ingredients:

2 cups old fashioned oats do no use quick cooking
2 cups flour 
1 cup brown sugar 
2/3 cup white sugar 
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
2 eggs 
1 teaspoon baking  soda 
1/2 teaspoon baking powder 
1 stick butter  
1/2 cup margarine 
1/2 cup shortening 
1 teaspoon vanilla 
1/2 cup coconut 
1  cup pecans chopped or any kind of nuts you like
6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, white chips or a combo
Optional: raisins, craisins or any dried fruits

instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat the sugars and all the butter, margarine and shortening together  until fluffy around 3 minutes
(I use an industrial mixer).  Add the eggs and vanilla. Add the baking soda, powder,  then stir in the flour and oats.

Add the coconut, pecans and chocolate chips or peanut butter chips. I even mix them up sometimes. These are also great with other candy-coated chocolate pieces.
The batter is very thick
I drop these cookies using a medium-sized ice cream scoop.

You can also roll the dough into golf size balls and put them on parchment or Silpat mat to bake.

Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees 12 to 15 minutes or until they start to brown on top depending on how big you make yours.
The less time you bake they will be soft in the center crunchy on the outside.
If you like them crunchier bake until very golden browned.
