Lady Wolfman's famous Cowboy cookies:
2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup coconut
1 cup chopped nuts
Combine: flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large mixer bowl. Add eggs one at a time, beating well
after each addition; gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips, coconut and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake in preheated 375 degrees oven for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Makes about 5 dozen.
If you want cow girl cookies leave out the nuts or if you want just plain chocolate chip cookies leave out the coconut. You can also leave out the nuts.
For diabetics: 1/3 rd cup of granulated sugar 1/3rd cup Splenda and 1/3rd cup brown sugar plus 1/3 cup Splenda brown sugar. Splenda works out good.
