Cowboy Cookies

Oatmeal Cookies with Chocolate Chips, Pecans, and Coconut

Gather the ingredients - * Butter * Brown sugar * Egg * Vanilla extract * Old fashioned oats * Flour * Baking soda * Chocolate chips * Shredded coconut * Pecans

Add the softened butter and brown sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer  fitted with the paddle attachment.  Beat on medium speed until well  combined.

– Next, add the egg and vanilla extract.  Mix to combine.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl, if needed. – Add the oats, flour, and baking soda.  Mix again until just combined.

Add the chocolate chips, shredded coconut, and chopped pecans.

Gently  fold them into the cookie dough, making sure not to break up the nuts too much.

Scoop out two-tablespoon sized balls and place them on the prepared  baking sheets.  Make sure to place them at least 2" apart as the cookies  will spread while baking.

Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the cookies are just set and beginning to brown around the edges.

Allow the cookies to cool completely on the pan before transferring them  to an airtight container.  Store at room temperature for up to five  days.
