Here is an old family recipe book that was made long before blogs became popular. We have just turned it into a blog so please have patience with us as we update pictures and info. We will also be adding some new recipes along the way.

Texas Governor's Cowboy Cookies
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.)
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)
