Cowgirl Cookies

I developed this recipe as a result of stopping off at a coffee shop after skiing one Sunday afternoon and enjoying the most fabulous cookie ever!

I created this recipe because we're going skiing this weekend... I call them Cowgirl cookies because I don't see any cowboys in the kitchen. At least, not too often around here. These are crazy cookies! Everything is in them! You'll love them too.

2 1/4 c all-purpose flour

1 1/4 c butter, softened

pinch of salt

2 t baking soda

1 c granulated sugar

1 c brown sugar

2 eggs

1 t vanilla

1 small box of white chocolate or vanilla instant pudding mix

1/2 c chopped macadamia nuts

1 c oatmeal (old fashioned rolled oats)

1/2 c chopped dried cranberries

1 c coconut

1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate morsels

Cream the butter and the sugars together with an electric mixer.

Add the eggs and the vanilla and cream together.

Combine flour, oats, pudding mix, salt and soda in a bowl and add to butter mixture.

Mix until the mixture is just beginning to combine.

Add the nuts, coconut, cranberries and chocolate morsels. Continue mixing until combined.

Bake at 350° for 10 - 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
