Cowboy Cookies

After much searching for a good cookie recipe, I came across this one for Cowboy Cookies at http://austinpie.blogspot.com/2008/11/cowboy-cookies.html . So what are cowboy cookies exactly? Hopefully not the kind of cowboys you get here in Ireland!

Ingredients :

1 cup butter
1 cup demarera sugar
1 cup rich dark sugar
2 cups self raising flour
2 cups oats
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup dark choc chips
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Method :

1. Cream butter and sugars

2. Beat in eggs and vanilla

3. Stir in flour and oats

4. Stir in raisins and choc chips

5. Dollop onto greaseproof paper

6. Bake for 10 - 15 mins at 180 degrees Celsius

7. Cool on a wire rack

8. Serve with a glass of milk, or hot milky tea!

These are chewy on the inside, and have a nice crunch on the outside, think I'll be adding nuts next time :)
