This recipe was posted in the newspaper almost 30 years ago. It makes a huge amount of cookies that you are supposed to use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to mound dough on cookie sheet for baking, making the cookies look like buffalo chips. However, I make small cookies and lots of them!

Ingredients

  • 2 stick
    butter, room temperature
  • 1 c
    crisco shortening
  • 1 lb
    light brown sugar and 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large
    eggs
  • 2 tsp
    vanilla extract
  • 4 c
    all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp
    baking soda
  • 2 tsp
    baking powder
  • 2 c
    quick cooking oatmeal
  • 2 c

How to Make Buffalo Chip Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Cream butter and shortening together until fluffy.
  2. Add 2 c. sugar and beat well. Add brown sugar and beat well until fluffy.
  3. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  4. In large mixing bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, oatmeal, cornflakes, coconut, and chopped pecans.
  5. Slowly add the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl to the wet ingredients in the mixer bowl. At lowest speed on mixer, continue to mix the dry ingredients into the butter mixture. Dough will get very stiff. If mixer bogs down, continue mixing by hand with a wooden spoon until all the dry ingredients have been mixed with the butter mixture. Sometimes I have had to use my hands to knead the ingredients until well combined.
  6. Add the chocolate chips. Mix well. It will take a little time to mix, but it will be worth it!
  7. Drop by teaspoons for small cookies, or tablespoons for big cookies on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with pan release spray.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees until edges are just beginning to brown for chewy cookies. Bake a little longer if you want the cookies to be crunchy. Let cool on cookie sheet for about 10 min. Remove with spatula onto rack for complete cooling.
  9. Cookies freeze well. Store in air tight container.
