Cowboy Cookies

I used to make these cookies when the kids were young, and Elizabeth mentioned them to her husband who said, "What are Cowboy Cookies??" So, in the interest of son-in-law education and appeasement, I made them. Here is the recipe!

1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour (can mix 1/2 white with 1/2 whole grain)
1 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 cups rolled oats
6 oz. pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips (or raisins if you prefer)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Cream sugars, butter, eggs and vanilla until fluffy. Sift dry ingredients and stir in. Add oatmeal, chocolate chips and nuts. Drop by a teaspoonful on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Makes 8-9 dozen cookies.

(Note: for RBTI, use Kosher salt, raisins and no nuts.)
