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!
