Laura Bush’s Cowboy Cookies

These are some seriously delicious cookies. They require a little extra time since they are so big and take a little longer to bake. (I used a cookie scoop although the original recipe calls for a whopping 1/4 cup of dough! They spread a bit so I found that only baking six on a sheet was ideal.)    Totally worth it though!

What you’ll need:

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 tablespoon baking soda

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) butter, room temperature

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

1 1/2 cups packed light-brown sugar

3 eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

3 cups semisweet chocolate chips

3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

2 cups sweetened flake coconut

2 cups chopped pecans

What you’ll do:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine first five ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.

Beat softened butter and both sugars until well mixed.

Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition.

Add in vanilla.

Gradually beat in flour mixture.

Finally, toss in all of those tasty add ins, mixing after each one. (This is a pretty stout dough so be prepared for your mixer to get a workout!)

Scoop onto a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake for 15-17 minutes.

Allow to cool as long as you can before grabbing a glass of milk and enjoying the world’s tastiest cookie!
