Over a Cup of Coffee: Jessica’s cookies

Diane Prather/For Craig Press

This week’s recipe for “Cowboy Cookies” was sent to me by our granddaughter, Jessica Prather, who lives in Vernal, Utah. She got it from her friend Lucia. Jessica says that her dad and brother, Jaycee, are “addicted” to the cookies. Please note that you need to use the exact amount of flour as called for in the recipe. Thanks, Jessica!

Who doesn’t like Oreos? “Oreo Ice Cream Dessert,” the other recipe in this week’s column is from my files. It might be a great dessert for Easter.

Cowboy Cookies

• 1 cup butter

• 1 cup brown sugar

• 1 cup sugar

• 2 eggs

• 1 teaspoon vanilla

• 2 cups flour (* Be careful because this can make or break the recipe.)

• 1 teaspoon baking soda

• ½ teaspoon baking powder

• ½ teaspoon salt

• 1 cup coconut

• 2 cups oatmeal

• Chocolate chips/nuts, optional

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter and sugars. Add the eggs and vanilla. Add in dry ingredients. By hand, add coconut, oatmeal, and chocolate chips/nuts (optional). Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. (*Note: Jessica wrote that after experimenting she found that 10-12 minutes baking time is better.) Let cool and enjoy. (* Note: Use the exact amount of flour.)
