Cowboy Cookies

 INGREDIENTS

  1. 12 tablespoons butter (melted¹)
  2. 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar (packed)
  3. 1 large egg
  4. 1 egg yolk
  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  6. 2 cups all-purpose flour²
  7. 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  8. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  9. 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt³
  10. 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  11. 4 ounces semisweet baking chocolate⁴ (chopped)
  12. 1 cup shredded coconut
  13. 1 cup chopped pecans

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
  • Add the melted butter and brown sugar to a large mixing bowl, and whisk until well-combined.
  • Whisk in the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla until well-combined.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk in until just combined.
  • Whisk in the oats just until incorporated.
  • Add the baking chocolate, pecans, and coconut, and whisk in until combined.
  • Drop by 1.5 tablespoon scoops (medium cookie scoops) 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake 8-14 minutes. The cookies should be light golden brown at the edges but look underdone in the middle. This will help to keep them soft and chewy.⁵
