Cowboy Cookies

Cowboy Cookies

A cowboy cookie is a chewy, oatmeal cookie that my kids love to make by themselves. My oven runs a little hotter so we bake them for 6 minutes instead of 8. 


1 cup butter, softened 
1 cup white sugar 
1 cup packed brown sugar 
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
2 tablespoons Irish Cream Cappuccino
 1 teaspoon baking powder 
1 teaspoon baking soda 
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups rolled oats 
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease baking sheets. 
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. With the mixer set to stir, add the baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix to combine. Gradually stir in the flour and rolled oats.  Stir in the chocolate chips by hand. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets.  
Bake for 6 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from the oven when edges are golden. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes. Place them on a cooling rack.
