Texas Cowboy Cookies

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Cyberchef

My mom clipped this recipe out of a local newspaper a few years ago. I have made them several times since then, especially at Christmas. They are usually the first to disappear from the cookie plate. The recipe has alot of mix-ins and will get hard to stir, I suggest you use a BIG bowl and sturdy wooden spoon. This makes a Texas-size batch!!

These were fantastic! Don't be scared off by the coconut if you're not a coconut fan - it just keeps the cookies super soft!
