Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies

This is one of my favorite recipes from the All Recipes Tried & True Cookies cookbook.

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies
makes: 3 dozen
preparation: 15 minutes
cooking: 10 minutes
total: 40 minutes

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream margarine, oil, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time. Gradually stir in the sifted ingredients until well blended. Mix in oats and butterscotch chips. Drop from a teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in preheated oven, or until edges are golden. Let set up on the cookie sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

  4. My little tweaks:
    1. chocolate chips instead of butterscotch chips
    2. I add in a handful of old-fashioned oats (gives cookies a little more texture)

you forgot the last step in the recipe...pour tall glass of milk, load a dozen warm cookies onto a plate, and bring both to Brent (who is on the couch watching football).
