Cowboy Cookies

Why are they called Cowboy Cookies, I don’t know.  My Grandpa was a cowboy.  He and my Grandma had Palomino horses, rode on silver saddles and he was a Sheriff for the King County Mounted Police.  I think Grandpa would have liked these cookies.

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
2 cups oats
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup shredded coconut
2/3 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350°.  In large bowl with electric mixer, cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar.  Add eggs and vanilla, mix well.  Add flour, oats, baking soda, salt, and baking powder, mix just until combined.  Stir in chocolate chips, coconut, and pecans.  Bake on Silpat lined baking sheet or lightly sprayed cookies sheet for 10-12 minutes, until golden brown.  Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes, then cool on wire rack.  Makes about 4½ dozen cookies.
