They say, "Everything's Bigger In Texas." These awesome giant cookies ring true. They will wow the lucky recipients during Christmas or any time, and kids crave them. There is an added twist to this cookie that other Buffalo Chip cookie recipes don't have. This cookie has been a family tradition for years and is always on our Christmas Cookie gift list. Friends and family begin calling in early November to say, "I sure hope ya'll are going to send those Buffalo Chips again this year."

How to Make Buffalo Chip Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. I use my Kitchen Aid to do all the mixing. It has a large enough bowl and the power to do it all.

    If you do not have a large mixer you will need to mix the last 5 ingredients by hand.
  2. Cream the butter and the sugars with your mixer in a large bowl. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.
  3. In another bowl sift together, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

    Add to butter mixture and mix well.
  4. Add the last 5 ingredients and incorporate thoroughly.

    Chill the bowl of dough for one hour. Keep the bowl in the refrigerator in between baking.
  5. Using an ice cream scoop, dip the scoop in flour and shake off excess flour for each scoop.
  6. Using two lightly greased cookie sheet pans, place 6 ice cream scoops of dough onto each sheet pan. They need lots of room to expand. Place cookie sheets on two racks in top 2/3 of the oven and rotate halfway through baking.

    Bake in a preheated oven at 350 F. for 15 to 18 minutes. Watch carefully as oven temperatures varies. When they are done, they should be turning slightly brown around edges and just turning a very light brown on top.
  7. For gift giving ideas:

    Stack six of these and wrap them with plastic wrap, tie them with a pretty ribbon and bow or raffia and include a recipe card.

    Wrap each one in plastic wrap and place in a basket with a pretty bow and tie a recipe card to the basket handle.

    Wrap in plastic, tie with a ribbon, and add one as a stocking stuffer.
