Recipe: Cowboy Cookies

Looking for a new chocolate chip cookie recipe? Try these tasty Cowboy Cookies. This recipe is a farm neighbor’s and is featured in the Purves Country Kitchen cookbook. We prefer our chocolate chip cookies flat and chewy and I’ve perfected this recipe so they turn out just right. In order to get them that way I use Pampered Chef stoneware rather than a normal metal cookie sheet. Another handy kitchen tool that I use for this recipe is a cookie dropper. With the help of a cookie dropper, all your cookies will be a similar size. You can also substitute raisins for the chocolate chips. My dad prefers raisins so I sometimes make half the recipe with chocolate chips and the other half with raisins. I’ll usually double the recipe as well.
Cowboy Cookies
1 cup margarine
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups rolled oats
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips (or raisins)
Blend margarine and sugar. Add eggs and beat well. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, vanilla and rolled oats. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop on cookie sheet and bake at 350 F for 10 to 12 minutes.
Oatmeal chocolate chip cookie dough.
Drop the dough onto Pampered Chef stoneware using a cookie dropper.

    1. I wish! Unfortunately I didn’t come up with the great name. It’s our farm neighbour’s recipe and she came up with the name – not sure why they’re called that.

  1. I love this recipe with the oatmeal in it! Yum. I like chewy cookies also and will try this out soon. I also love seeing the pic of your ingredients. The packaging is different in Canada so all looks gourmet and new to me!
