I’ve never been so happy with cookies my whole life! I mean these cowboy cookies are so addicting! They are so yummy, nutty, soft, and chewy. They taste and look like they are made in a fancy bakery. But boy, these are homemade cookies. And they’re pretty easy to make too. I love to experiment so I tried to substitute pecans with almonds and walnuts and they are as much as amazing. I toast the nuts too because toasting improves their texture and flavor, making them richer and crispier. And it’s a winner every time! One cookie is not enough, I always come back for more.

Step 3: Place the butter in a separate large bowl, beat using at medium speed until smooth and creamy.
Step 4: Gradually add in the sugars, and beat thoroughly.
Step 5: Then, add the eggs one at a time. Make sure to add and beat each egg. Add in the vanilla.
Step 6: Whisk in the flour mixture until just combined. And stir in the chocolate chips, oats, coconut, and pecans.
Step 7: Scoop and place the dough 3 inches apart into the ungreased baking sheets.
Step 8: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 15 to 17 minutes until the edges are lightly browned. Then, rotate the sheets halfway through.
