This is Laura Badgers recipe for Cowboy Cookies, which is very similar to my Buffalo Chip Cookie recipe.
Cream together till really, really smooth.
4 sticks of butter
2 cups of sugar
2 cups of packed brown sugar
Add 2 teaspoons of vanilla just before the dry ingredients.
4 cups of flour
2 ½ teaspoons of baking powder
2 teaspoons of baking soda
½ teaspoon of salt
Add the dry ingredients to the butter/sugar mixture – slowy
In a HUGE mixing bowl mix together.
1 large bag of coconut
2 cups of oatmeal
3 cups of cornflakes
1 cup of chopped pecans – I have an endless supply, so I add more
At least 24 ounces of chocolate chips, you can vary up the flavors. I use DARK, DARK chocolate and probably 36 ounces.
Add your mixture to the mixing bowl. Chill overnight. I freeze half of it for later use. Bake at 350 for about 12 minutes.
