If you’re looking for a really good cookie, here is the most awesome cowboy cookie recipe you’ll ever find.
I know that might be saying a lot but this awesome cowboy cookie recipe is definitely most awesome. It has stood the test of time. Literally.
When I was in Junior High, we still had home economics classes. We were actually taught cooking, baking, sewing and other domestic skills in school! Yes – Even the boys were taught these skills.
And I loved that class. I think skills like those are becoming lost to trying to teach our kids other things we will never learn again (which is sad). But that’s another topic for another day.
Anyways, one of the recipes we were given from our teacher and expected to learn was this awesome cowboy cookies recipe I’m going to share with you today. It was always a hit when we made it at school years ago and I know it will be for you, too.
In this post, I will:
* Share this most awesome cowboy cookie recipe with you,
* Give you ingredients and instructions on how to make them,
* Tell you some ideas for how to share this amazing cowboy cookie with everyone you know.

Ingredients You Need
- 1 Cup Brown Sugar
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Cup Soft Margarine
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 2 Cups Flour
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
- 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
- 2 Cups Rolled Oats
- 6 Ounces Chocolate Chips

How to Make the most awesome Cowboy Cookies
First of all, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
To get started, cream brown sugar, sugar and the margarine together until smooth. Then, beat in the eggs until fluffy. Add vanilla. Stir in flour, soda, baking powder and salt. Combine thoroughly. Stir in rolled oats.
When the dough is combined, it’s time to put them onto a cookie sheet to bake. Do not grease the cookie sheet. Drop by teaspoonfuls or use a cookie dough scoop to make perfectly sized cookies. Leave about a half inch in between cookie dough spots as these cookies will spread. Bake for 8-10 minutes. This recipe makes 5 dozen cookies!
Freeze These Fabulous Cookies for Later!
There are two ways to freeze cookies. You can either roll into balls and freeze the dough to pull out and bake later. Or you can bake the cookies fresh and freeze the cookies for later. These cookies freeze very well either way you choose.
To freeze the cookie dough, place some parchment paper onto a cookie sheet. Roll into teaspoon sized balls or use your cookie scoop to make perfectly sized balls to your liking. Place onto the cookie sheet. You can place these closer together as they aren’t going to spread a part like they would if they were baking. Finally, put the cookie sheet into your freezer until cookies are hard.
Take the cookie sheet out and peel off the cookie balls. Place into a freezer safe bag or freezer safe container for safe keeping. Keep in the freezer for up to a year.
The second way to freeze cookies is to simply place into a freezer safe bag or freezer safe container after baking for up to 1 year. Let the cookies cool completely before doing so. You can then pull out some cookies whenever you have a craving or need some cookies to share.
What is so great about these cookies?
Well, for one, it’s an easy cookie. It contains ingredients most of us keep on hand so it’s a great one to have when you’re strapped on resources and time.
Plus, they are delicious. Oatmeal…Chocolate…Soft baked into a cookie. Can’t get any better than that!
Share these cookies with others!
When we made these awesome cowboy cookies at school, we actually had a lot of fun sharing them with other classes and teachers around the school. We would just walk up and down the hall announcing: “We have cowboy cookies! Who wants one?”
And, of course, lots of people wanted one. Because they were good! They still are to this day one of my most popular cookies I make.
Again, if you need a cookie for your kids’ school class snack or maybe a bake sale or a pot luck and even a Christmas cookie plate gift for someone. These are great for all of those. As I mentioned above, you can freeze them and just pull them out when you need some cookies to share.
