Texas Cowboy Cookies
These are a family favorite. You'll get a big "Yee Haw!" from all your cowboys."Great cookies! I have also altered the recipe with success, to make it a bit more "healthy". The substitutions I used were: Sucanat in place of all the sugars, whole wheat pastry flour instead of white, carob chips instead of chocolate. It also tastes good with cashews or walnuts!

Texas Cowboy Cookies Preparation
Heat oven to 350 F.
Mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in bowl. Beat butter on medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 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 onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing 3 inches apart. Bake in 350 F oven 15 to 20 minutes, until edges are lightly browned; rotate sheets halfway through. Remove cookies from rack to cool.
These make 24 "Texas-sized" or 36 "Yankee-sized" cookies.
