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!

How to Make Cowboy cookies amped up!

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
