Cowgirl Cookies

Recipe by  

"These cookies are reminiscent of a white chunk macadamia nut cookie but better. Using slivered almonds instead of macadamia nuts is a more economical alternative. Follow baking directions. The cookies can be a little tricky to get right on the first pan. Unless the oven is preheated, they might not turn out. Note that these cookies don't bake well on airbake pans."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease two cookie sheets.
  2. Cream the margarine together with the white sugar and brown sugar in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time until thoroughly blended. Mix in the vanilla and almond extracts.
  3. Stir the flour, baking soda, salt, and rolled oats together in a mixing bowl until well blended. Stir the flour mixture into the sugar mixture. Mix in the coconut, white chocolate, and macadamia nuts until evenly blended. Drop by tablespoonfuls 1 inch apart on prepared cookie sheets.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until centers are set and edges are golden brown, about 15 minutes. Cool 3 minutes on baking sheets before removing to cool on a rack.

This is my recipe and I wanted to say that in the description it way the oven preheated, I wanted to say the cookie sheets preheated.

Good cookie, a little sweet but very tasty. If I make these again, I will add more white chocolate (I used half a bag of white choc. chips...next time the whole bag!), more mac nuts, and decrease the sugar a little.

I made a trial run of these and cut the recipe in half just in case noone was a fan. I did the math for the sugars and did half and half of each so my cookies would be a lighter shade, like chocolate chip cookies. I also ground down the oatmeal in my blender to give it a less chunky consistancy. (We like our oatmeal cookies that way.) Instead of white chocolate chunks, I used white chocolate chips. The submitter suggested to preheat your cookie sheets but I found that just preheating the oven was sufficient. Ten minutes at 350* lent to a soft, chewy cookie. Heaven in your mouth. Next time I'll double the recipe and share with my friends and neighbors. This would be really good with Craisins, too, I think. Next time, I might use all vanilla.

Super cookies! I did not have vanilla or baking soda so I used 1 extra teaspoon of almond extract and substituted baking powder for the soda. Wonderful texture and flavor. With an "air-bake" cookie sheet I had to increase the baking time to 18 minutes and they are perfectly golden. These are now top of our list for cookies.

Delicious!! I didn't have macadamia nuts, so I used cashews. Note that this makes a very large batch. I was overflowing my KitchenAid! Next time I will make a half batch. This time I froze half the cookie dough.

Amazing cookie! I love white chocolate macadamia cookies, and this is my favorite recipe! I blend my oats because I prefer the texture, used white chocolate chips, and left out the coconut, but those are just personal preferences. Some reviews suggest halfing the recipe, I think you can't have enough of these! I did and ended up with 26 large cookies. Delicious!
