Cowboy Cookies

There's almost nothing better than a perfectly crisp and chewy chocolate chip cookie.  But I love this loaded cookie!  Sometimes you feel plain, sometimes you want it all....right??!!:)  I've been making them since I was probably 12 or so, and now Kyla is getting to be the expert at these cookies as well.  They are one of my kids' favorite cookies!  If we're just making them for the family we usually half the recipe because this one makes a TON of cookies!

Cowboy Cookies (Made by Kyla)
2 cups sugar
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup margarine or butter
1 cup shortening
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 eggs
4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 cups oats
2 cups coconut
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips

Cream butter, shortening and sugars.  Add eggs and vanilla and mix.  Add the flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder and mix until combined.  Then add the oats, coconut, chocolate and butterscotch chips and mix in.  Drop onto cookie sheet using a 1 tablespoon scoop or use two spoons.  Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
Enjoy!!
