You don’t have to be a cowboy or cowgirl to love these cookies. I’m neither and couldn’t get enough of them.
I’m not exactly sure why they’re named Cowboy Cookies. Maybe because they’re so hearty and full of texture that after eating them you’ll be ready to go to work out on the ranch for a few hours.
I’ve seen many recipes for them over the years, including Laura Bush’s recipe and merged various recipesinto one for this version.
There are so many textures, flavors, and elements in every bite and it all somehow works. They’re like an Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie with the addition of shredded coconut, which reminds me of Soft and Chewy Seven Layer Magic Bar Cookies. Chewy oats, sweet coconut, and chocolate is a perfect combo.
