COWBOY COOKIES

With the addition of oats and coconut, Cowboy Cookies are heartier than your typical chocolate chip cookie.  If you want to make them even more sinfully delicious, you can add in toffee pieces!

Switching out shortening for half the butter makes it so they don’t get as dark when baking.  But using all butter makes them… well… buttery-er!?!  It’s your choice.  Either way Cowboy Cookies are delicious.  They work well with margarine too.

And, if you’re (ahem) lazy, or just want to save time, you can press this recipe into a 12×17″ Jelly Roll pan for bar cookies.

Why I love Cowboy Cookies

Cowboy Cookies are flavorful and have crisp edges with a soft center.  The coconut takes it up a notch!
