Texas Governor's Mansion Cowboy Cookies

Wow that's a mouthful! These cookies will be too. They are so good...something about having coconut in a cookie makes me so happy. I found this recipe in the Dallas Morning News when we lived in Dallas. Now that I'm in Idaho, I thought I'd give these cookies a try.


Texas Governor's Mansion Cowboy Cookies

*Laura Bush

3 cups flour
1 Tbs baking powder
1 Tbs baking soda
1 Tbs ground cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups (3 cubes) butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups packed light-brown sugar
3 eggs
1 Tbs vanilla
3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
2 cups sweetened flake coconut
2 cups chopped pecans (8 oz)

Directions:
Heat oven to 350 F. Mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in bowl. Set aside.
In large 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. Stir in flour mixture until just combined. Add chocolate chips, oats, coconut and pecans. For each cookie drop 1/4 cup dough (everything's bigger in Texas) onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing 3 inches apart. Bake for 17-29 minutes, until edges are lightly browned; rotate sheets halfway through. remove cookies from rack to cool.

For smaller cookies, use 2 tablespoons dough for each. Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes. Printable recipe

  1. Okay, so I tried your spinach salad on my family last night. So very good!! That one's a keeper! Thanks!

    I'm glad you liked it. I think I could eat only that for the rest of my life and I would be happy!
