      Laura Bush’s Cowboy Cookies

      Makes about 36
      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 (at room temperature)
      1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
      1-1/2 cups packed light-brown sugar
      3 large 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 (8 ounces)

      Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. In an 8-quart bowl, beat butter on medium speed until smooth and creamy, 1 minute.

      Gradually beat in sugars; beat to combine, 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each. Beat in vanilla extract. Stir in flour mixture until just combined.

      Add chocolate chips, oats, coconut, and pecans. For each cookie, drop 1/4 cup dough onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing 3 inches apart.

      Bake for 17 to 19 minutes, until edges are lightly browned; rotate sheets halfway through. Remove cookies from the rack to cool. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

      NOTE: For 6 dozen smaller cookies, use 2 tablespoons of dough for each. Bake at 350 F for 15 to 18 minutes.
      Note: As seen on “Good Morning America.”

      This sounds good! I have a recipe for Cowboy cookies, but it doesn’t have coconut in it. The cookies are big and round and chewy.budget101 cowboy cookies
