Texas Governor's Cowboy Cookies

Ingredients:3 c. flour
1 T. baking powder
1 T. baking soda
1 T. cinnamon (I like doing 1 tsp, then 1 tsp of orange peel)
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 c. butter or margarine (room temp)
3 eggs
1 T. vanilla
3 c. chocolate chips
3 c. oats
2 c. angel flake coconut
2 c. chopped nuts (opt.)

Directions:1. Sift flour, baking powder & soda, cinnamon, & salt; set aside
2. Beat butter until smooth & creamy, then gradually beat in sugars; beat to combine for 2 minutes
3. Add eggs 1 at a time
4. Beat in vanilla
5. Stir in flour mixture until just combined
6. Add chips, oats, coconut, & nuts
7. Scoop into balls about 1/4 c. size (maybe with an ice cream scooper), and set 3 inches apart (I find that pressing the balls down just a little bit helps them took cook better & bigger
8. Bake at 350ºF for 15-20 minutes, or until edges are slightly brown
*makes 3 dozen (for so much work I usally do half again as much & put it in the fridge--a 1 1/2 batch barely fits into a bosch mixer)
