Baking : Cowboy Cookies- An old-fashioned Cookie Recipe

Great Cookies. Recipe is from that old Lutheran church cookbook again- along with this poem.


A house should have a cookie jar,
For When it's half past three,
And children hurry home from school,
As hungry as can be.

There's nothing quite so splendid,
In filling children up,
As spicy, fluffy ginger cakes,
And sweet milk in a cup.

A house should have a Mother,
waiting with a hug,
No matter what a boy brings home,
A puppy or a bug.

For children only loiter,
When the bell rings to dismiss,
If no one's home to greet them,
With a cookie and a Kiss.


1 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups oatmeal
2 cups flaked coconut
2 cups chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Stir in sifted dry ingredients. Then add oatmeal, coconut and chocolate chips. Drop by Tablespoons on cookie Sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes.
