Cowboy Cookies
Elaine's Corner

This recipe is my mom's recipe and it is the best cowboy cookie recipe that I have ever tried.  Don't over bake these cookies.  They should just barely start to turn brown and still look soft and moist when you take them out of the oven. This makes them nice and chewy and not hard.  Either way they are a great cookie!  Take them off the cookie pans immediately after baking and then let them cool. 

What you will need:

2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. soda in 2 tbsp. boiling water
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups rolled oats
1 pkg. chocolate chips

Putting the cookie together:

Cream shortening and sugars together.  Add eggs and beat until creamy.  Mix salt and baking powder in with flour and sift together.  Mix soda into boiling water.  Add the flour mixture to the shortening mixture.  Add vanilla.  Stir in oats and chocolate chips.  Drop by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly brown.  Makes 50 cookies.


We have adorable cookie pockets to go with these:
