Cowboy Cookies

I love chocolate and coconut together! This is a classic Cowboy cookie, my kids couldn't figure out why they call them "Cowboy" cookies, after all they don't look like a Cowboy- so I researched a bit, and I still have NO idea why they call them Cowboy Cookies *shrug* - Oh well, they taste great! 


2 Cups Flour 
1 t Baking Soda
1 t Salt
1/2 t Baking Powder
1 Cup Unsalted Butter, Softened 
2 Eggs
3/4 Cup White Sugar
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
2 t Mexican Vanilla     or      1 t Regular Vanilla
1 1/2 Cups Oats 
1 Cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips
3/4 Cup Pecan Halves
1/2 Cup Shredded Sweetened Coconut


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together sugars and butter until pale and fluffy (about 3 minutes). Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder. Slowly add four mixture to creamed mixture until just incorporate. Beat in oats, chocolate chips, pecans, and coconut until combined. Scoop onto a greased cookie sheet or nonstick baking mat. Bake until edges of cookie begin to brown 11-13 minutes.
