Cowboy Cookies

Cowboy Cookies are a favorite for most kids...even older ones. I found this recipe while looking through my recipe file the other day and it came from a friend who used to live in town. I have to admit that this is the first time in many years that I have made cookies. The great thing about this recipe is that you can add or subtract the add-ins.

Cowboy Cookies

2 Cups White Sugar
2 Cups Brown Sugar
1 Cup Shortening
1 Cup Butter
4 Eggs
4 Cups Flour
4 Cups Oats
2 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp Baking Powder
2 Tsp Vanilla
1 Cup Chocolate Chips
2 Cups M & M's
Optional - 1 Cup Chopped Nuts or 1 Cup Coconut

Mix sugar, shorting and butter until creamy. Add eggs one at the time until mixed. Add Vanilla Mix dry ingredients together and add to mixture. Add chocolate chips, M & M's and nuts. Mix by hand. Spoon onto cookie sheet depending on the size you want your cookies. Bake at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes. Makes 8-9 dozen.
