Peanut Butter Cowboy Cookies

Peanut Butter Cowboy Cookies

Every year at work starting July 29 and for 3 days we have what's called "Turn".  It's a time when most leases end and old tenants move out and the new get ready to move in.  We usually have about 3-5 days to get units ready.  The painting crew that comes in and does this work for us works those 3 days straight and by the end of it most of them are real punchy.  I try to make them goodies for the last day.  This year this was one of them.  I also made the head painter carrot cake cupcakes with cream cheese frosting (his favorite) and the owner of the company(by special request) I made him brownies from scratch (which was a new receipe).   I will share these recipes over the next two weeks.

Serves: 26-28 large cookies or 60 regular
  • 2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ⅔ cup smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup cocktail peanuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 12 oz milk chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the softened butter, light brown sugar, granulated sugar, peanut butter and vanilla. Beat for 3 minutes until smooth, fluffy and light beige in color. Add the eggs one at a time beating well after each addition. Stop to scrape the bowl periodically so all of the ingredients fully combine.
  4. Add the dry ingredients gradually while beating on low speed, mixing well between each addition.
  5. Repeat until all of the dry ingredients have been added, stopping to scrape the sides of the bowl as needed.
  6. After all of the dry ingredients have been added, increase the speed of the mixer and beat for 1 minute.
  7. Use a large non-stick spatula to mix in the quick-cooking oats, peanuts, milk chocolate chips and sweetened flaked coconut by hand. The batter will be stiff.
  8. Use a 4 oz ice cream scoop or the small scoop (which I used) to separate the dough. Place the dough rounds at least 3-inches apart on the baking sheet. Press the centers to flatten slightly for even baking.
  9. Bake for 16-18 minutes until lightly golden.
  10. Cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Thanks  for stopping by,  have a great week and always Remember to Find the Time to DO ALL the thing You L♥ve.
