Cowboy cookies

Have you ever heard of Cowboy Cookies? I admit that before I got married I had never heard of them, but they happen to be one of my husband's favorite cookies and my mother-in-law kindly gave me the family recipe for them. These tasty little cookies are a combination of two classic cookies, chocolate chip and oatmeal. They are chewy, chocolates and totally delicious!

How to make cowboy cookies:

  1. Whisk the butter, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth.
  2. Add the eggs, baking soda, baking powder, salt, lemon juice, and vanilla. Keep mixing until everything is combined.
  3. Add flour 1/2 cup at a time, allowing it to mix between each addition of flour.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and rolled oats.
  5. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator to chill the dough for about 30 minutes.
  6. Once it's cold, place the dough on a cookie sheet, using about 2 tablespoons of dough per cookie.
  7. Bake at 375 degrees F. for 10-15 minutes, until edges are light brown.
  8. Chill on the rack for 2 minutes, then transfer to the cooling rack.
  9. Store in an airtight container until ready to serve.

This Cowboy Cookies recipe is also a great cookie recipe in a jar! I have given them away several times and they are easy to put together. Put all the dry ingredients in a glass jar, screw on the lid and put on a recipe card. Then whoever you give the jar to just add the wet ingredients and bake the cookies. Makes a great homemade holiday gift!

There are many variations of Cowboy Cookies out there. I've seen them with sweetened nuts and coconut flakes, and I've even seen some versions that use rice cereal or corn flakes. This cowboy cookie recipe is the one my mother-in-law has passed down to me and my family loves. I hope yours too!
