If you don't have a large bowl, a clean plastic dishpan works well! I bought one just to use for mixing large-quantiy recipes. When not in use as a mixing bowl, I store baking supplies in it in the cupboard. That way it doesn't take up extra room.

Well, my husband says rate this cookie a 9 out of 10 since there is no 10, I gave it 5 stars! This is a different cookie. It is extremely flavorful. I used M&M's, springtime chips, pecans, peanut chips. Also, I did not have Old Fashioned Oats so I replaced with Quick Oats and they came out fabulous. My coconut I toasted lightly beforehand. I used my normal cookie scoop and just dropped 9 cookies to a sheet to allow plenty of spread room. Fabulous and makes an enormous amount of cookies, but we are big cookie eaters here! Thank you for a great recipe!! I baked @ 350 for 17 minutes, beautiful.

I needed to make cookies for Teacher Appreciation Day at my son's school and decided to do a double batch of these. I used both semi-sweet and dark chocolate chips. They bake up so nice and taste fantastic. I will be reccomending this recipe for years to come!!! I also want to try making it using M&M's or Chocolate raisins instead of chocolate chips as the dough is such a great start for almost any mix in! Yummy. Thank you so much for sharing.

This is my favorite cowboy cookie recipe! I made a batch without coconut this week because I was out and it makes a big difference. You can't really taste it so much when it is in the cookie, but I think it adds a great texture and moisture.

This is in the keeper binder! You know it is serious when it gets printed out!

These are wonderful! I also made them just as written but could easily see substitions of the type of chips or dried fruit and type of nut. The recipe says 2 to 3 dozen but I got 5 dozen using an ice cream scoop. Great cookies.

I made this for my Christmas Open House. When they first came out of the oven I thought they were too salty. I put them in the freezer until the party and once they were served EVERYONE loved these. Will definitely make these again!

These are MOST excellent! I used about 1.5 cups of coconut, 1 cup raisens, 1 cup milk chocolate morsels, and 1 cup semi-sweet with 2 cups of chopped walnuts. My husband says I outdid myself with this recipe ... he and my 2 year old got up just now and gave a high-five over these cookies! As a side note, I melted my butter a little too efficiently ... I had to refrigerate my dough in order to make it firm enough to form into balls ... 11 minutes in the oven and cooling on the pan did the trick.
