Cowboy Cookies

Another recipe from my cousin Katy, who is also the organizer of the dinner group I belong to. Katy's cooking never fails to please. Anyway, Katy made a batch of these cowboy cookies the other night, and I had to have the recipe! Who doesn't love a good oatmeal chocolate chip cookie?

Cream together:
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs

Add dry ingredients:
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Add other ingredients:
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 - 2 cups chocolate chips
2 cups rolled oats

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Drop onto greased baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes. Makes about 5 dozen cookies. You can also roll the dough in plastic wrap and store in the fridge. When you want to bake them, cut off slices and bake them.
