Cowboy Cookies from First Lady Laura Bush

I just saw this recipe on another blog that I follow. I can't believe I haven't posted this earlier. After all, I live in Texas!

Oatmeal cookies filled with nuts, chocolate chips and a hint of cinnamon.
Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
1 Sheet Pan, lined with Parchment Paper.
3 C flour
1 TBS Baking Powder
1 TBS Baking Soda
1 TBS ground Cinnamon
1 tsp Salt
1 1/2 C Butter, room temperature
1 1/2 C granulated Sugar
1 1/2 C Brown Sugar
3 Large Eggs
1 TBS Vanilla
3 C Semisweet Chocolate Chips
3 C Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
2 C Sweetened Flaked Coconut
2 C Chopped Pecans 
Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a medium mixing bowl.
In a large bowl:
Beat butter on medium speed until smooth and creamy, 1 minute. 
Gradually beat in granulated Sugar and Brown Sugar, beat for 2 minutes.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each.
Beat in vanilla extract.
Fold in flour mixture by hand, just until combined.
Fold in chocolate chips, oats, coconut and pecans.
For each cookie:
Drop  3 TBS (1/4 C) of dough 3" apart on the Sheet Pan.
Bake 17-19 minutes. The edges should be golden brown.
Remove the pan to a rack to cool for 5 minutes.
Transfer the cookies to the rack to cool completely.
Enjoy!
Peace in the Kitchen!
