Recipe - Cowboy Cookie

Today I thought I'd share a recipe.... apologies to the person who posted it somewhere online... I grabbed it and have no idea where it's from, but it sure is yummy!

These are the cookies I made to go to the zoo last Saturday (that I stayed up until midnight making). I've also made these for our bunco group when we had a cowboy/rodeo theme night. For stuff like that, I like to make them extra big and give each person one- Yum!

Cowboy Cookie

1 cup shortening
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 (6 oz) package chocolate chips (or chunks!)
1/2 cup shredded coconut

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, cream the shortening, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Add eggs and the vanilla and beat until well blended. Stir in the flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder. Add oats, nuts, chocolate chips and coconut, mix until combined. Spoon cookie mixture onto greased foil lined cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.
