Dessert -Cowboy Cookies

Cookies are not only fun to bake, but delicious to eat. I love warm cookies with a steaming cup of coffee or a cold glass of milk. ENJOY making and eating the cookies made from the recipe below. Let me know how they turn out for you. Clipped this out of the newspaper too.

1 cup butter
1 and 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
12-ounce package chocolate chips
2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal
7 ounces coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs, mixing well. In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking soda and salt together and gradually add to sugar mixture.
Stir in chocolate chips, oatmeal, coconut and pecans. Drop by teaspoonful onto lightly greased or sprayed cookie sheet, or line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from oven and cool on wire racks. Makes 48 to 60 cookies.
