Cowboy Cookies

For that little boy and girl in everyone that wants to be sweetened up and treated, charmed, adored and valentine. These are Stasha's and Michael's favorite cookies and Dick and David and April and Roy Rogers and Chick Cashman.....

The Cookie. Small, thin dry cake, usually sweetened. and then there are those cookies that take us to the heights of oral fetishism. The cookie that lets you know from the first mouthful you had better be prepared for an orgy of taste.

Ingredients and method: Preheat Oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Assemble (room temp.) 1/4 lb. Butter

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

    Cream in Mixer


  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon evap. milk

    Cream in Mixer


  • 1 & 1/4 cups of flour with
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder and
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

    Add to the creamed butter

    Then add

  • 1 cup of oats

    Finally add

  • 1 cup of best imported choc. chips
  • 1 cup of crushed pecans or walnuts.

    To crush pecans and extract the oil place in a plastic bag. Force the air out and grind on them gently. When I have my trusty mallet: I use that, when I don't: the bottom of a Pyrex measuring bowl is heavy enough to crush and release the oils and that is the trick to the flavor!

    With 2 spoons make small mounds, a teaspoon is best but a tablespoon will do! for the bears amongst us that need larger cookies. With a fork dipped in cold water flatten the mounds out and make sure all chips of nuts and chocolate are attached to the very heavy dough. Bake 15-18 minutes for the full effect or 15 minutes if you prefer cookies softer!
