Cowboy Cookies have a fantastic chew from oatmeal and coconut plus whatever mix-ins you choose. Try my classic combination of chocolate chips and walnuts!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
In a standing mixer fit with the paddle attachment on medium speed, or with an electric mixer, beat butter, white sugar and brown sugar together. Add eggs and vanilla.
Drop heaping tablespoons of cookie dough at least 2 inches apart on an prepared baking sheets.
Bake until the edges are lightly browned, about 12 to 15 minutes. Cool 5 minutes on baking sheet before transferring to a rack to cool completely.
