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)

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

    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!
