Cowboy cookies amped up!

On a presidental election year Womens Day usually publishes cookie recipes of the wives of the presidental candidates. Laura Bush had a recipe for cowboy cookies but I felt they needed more than just oatmeal and chocolate chips. I could also have added dried cranberries or raisins, but my family & friends prefer it with coconut instead. Whenever there's a party with lots of people, this is my "to go to" recipe!

Ingredients

3 c
all purpose flour
1 Tbsp
baking powder
1 Tbsp
baking soda
1 Tbsp
cinnamon
1 tsp
salt
3 stick
unsalted butter
1-1/2 c

1 Tbsp

1 bag(s)

1 bag(s)
white chocolate chips
3 c
old fashioned rolled oats
2 c
coconut
2 c
walnuts or pecans

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine in bowl and set aside the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt
2
In mixing bowl beat on medium speed until smooth and creamy the butter. Gradually beat and combine the granulated and brown sugars; then add eggs, one at a time, beating after each egg
3
Add the vanilla and the reserved dry ingredients. Transfer this mix to a large bowl and add remaining ingredients--batter will be very stiff and hard to mix, but be sure to mix thoroughly
4
Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet--use 1 tbsp, 2 tbsp or even 1/4 c. for each cookie-size is up to you. Bake 15-18 minutes ( rotating cookies halfway thru baking time), or until golden. Remove immediately to rack to cool. This makes TONS of cookies-depending on size you can get 16 dozen! Great for parties
