Cookies, Cookies, we love cookies. We really love cowboy cookies; we make them by the dozens. While making them the other day, I discovered that our almost 5 year old has the recipe memorized. That is how much we make them!!
I am going to share this super easy, super yummy recipe with you. I make mine with my kitchen-aid mixer which makes them even easier. I am unsure of where the recipe originally came from; I got it from my Mother-in-Law. Try them, you’ll love em!
1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup oatmeal
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. The next step is to soften the 1 cup of butter, then mix the butter in with 1 cup of brown sugar and 1 cup of white sugar. Add in the 2 eggs, 2 cups of flour, 1 tsp of baking soda, 1 tsp of baking soda, 1 cup of oatmeal, and 1 tsp of vanilla. Stir it up really well, and then add in 1 cup of chocolate chips. Drop cookies by the spoonful onto a cookie sheet, bake at 350 for about 7 minutes or until golden brown. I usually end up 5 dozen cookies.
When I make these cookies, I add in ¼ cup of flax seed to make them “healthier”. You can also make variations of these cookies, instead of using chocolate chips you could use M&Ms or Raisins or both. You could also add in walnuts or pecans. We have made them several different ways.
Another idea, when we make these we usually end up with 5 dozen cookies, we don’t need 5 dozen cookies at once. So we bake 2 dozen and freeze the rest. To freeze them we make them into balls, and place them in a container. We divide them up by the dozen. Then when we want fresh cookies we take them out of the freezer and bake them. So good!!!
