Cowboy Cookies

20150922_160354 (1)

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 ½ tsp cornstarch
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter (melted but not boiling)
  • 1 ½ cup unpacked brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (I prefer semi-sweet)
  • 1 1/2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups crushed cornflakes (I’ve used Frosted Flakes hehe)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or almonds or walnuts – basically get some nuts in there!



  1. With the oven rack in center of oven, preheat to 350°F.
  2. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients but not the nuts or the chocolate chips. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to mix together butter and sugars until all lumps are gone. Blend in eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla and beat some more.
  4. With mixer on low speed add dry ingredients from the medium bowl until just combined. Then use a large spoon to stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
  5. Scoop dough onto prepared cookie sheets, spaced about 2 inches apart. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until cookies are set and edges are beginning to turn golden brown. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. They will continue baking on the sheet so don’t let the cookies reach fully brown in the oven. The cornstarch will keep them moist.


Pack these suckers up and send them out with your favorite rodeo partner. And remember – not everything can be fixed with a kiss, but few negative things can survive a cookie.


Mary’s never been completely honest with anyone–especially herself.

The man she’s supposed to marry reminds her of her father in ways she’s suppressed for years–controlling, abusive, and manipulative. The sisters she’s finally found don’t understand her shame or confusion.

When Ian enters the picture with his British accent and Montana tan, Mary starts to question the past and her loyalty to a father who took away all her chances at true happiness.

Can Mary help her sisters break free from their father’s diabolical past? Or will his sins corrupt any chance at true happiness with Ian? And herself?
