These deliciously chewy Cowboy Cookies were shared with us by Jean, from Hadley, Pennsylvania who originally got this recipe from a woman in her Sunday school class. Wash them down with a tall glass of milk and you're in business!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream shortening, sugars, eggs, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add flour mixture and mix well. Stir in oats and chocolate chips. Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets.
  4. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove to wire rack to cool completely.

I have a recipe like this from my Mother and her sister from the 1940's. Very similar. I sell at Farmers Markets and I make these sometimes and along with the chocolate chips, I also put in M and M's and the kids love them just as much as my sisters and I did when we were kids!

I have been making these cookies for years. I got the recipe from my girlfriends mother back in 1967. They are so darn good.

I forgot to say how good these are, especially with a cold glass of milk. Also we live in mid-Ohio.

This is the same recipe my mom used to make. She clipped the recipe out of the newspaper about 45 years ago.

I MAKE THESE COOKIES EVERY YEAR FOR CHRISTMAS AND LIKE THEM BETTER THAN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES...THEY ARE REALLY GOOD AND WHEN I KNOW COMPANY IS COMING WITH LITTLE ONES I MAKE THEM AS THEY JUST LOVE THEM...

2-Minute Slaw

It doesn't get more simple or classic than our 2-Minute Slaw. It's great for summertime BBQs on those lazy, sun-drenched days. So when the meat comes of the grill and you realize you forgot the slaw, no worries... it'll be done in a wink!
