Texas Cowboy Cookies

"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!

    I've made these several times now and they are always a big hit. I like to use half white choc. chips, and sometimes whatever I have on hand to mix in. I also cut down the baking soda a bit, but that's personal taste. You can't go wrong with this recipe! A must have in your cookie cookbook!!

    These were fantastic. One of my friends had 3 (which was a lot because I made huge cookies) then 2 asked for the recipe. Awesome!
