  • Summary

    You don’t have to be a cowboy or cowgirl to love the cookies. They’re hearty, loaded with texture, and have so many wonderful flavors going on in every bite. The cookies are like Peanut Butter Cookies crossed with Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, plus shredded coconut. Slightly salty peanut butter, chewy oats, sweet coconut, and chocolate is a winning combination. Throw in pecans and Cornflakes and there’s texture galore. I’ve seen Cowboy Cookies called Kitchen Sink Cookies and rightfully so. Almost everything but the kitchen sink is included and it’s the type of recipe that it’s easy to make substitutions and swaps with the add-ins used.

    Ingredients

    • 1 large egg
    • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
    • heaping 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
    • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
    • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 cup old-fashioned whole-rolled oats (not quick-cook or instant)
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
    • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
    • 3/4 cup Cornflakes or Special K cereal (Frosted Flakes or a similar cereal may be substituted)
    • 3/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut
    • 1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped (walnuts or almonds may be substituted)
