When guests from the Drowsy Water Ranch leave to head home from their dude ranch vacation, sure they talk about the fun they have had horseback riding. They also may talk about the great food and the how much the kids enjoyed themselves. But, they will surely talk about the Drowsy Water Ranch Chocolate Chip Cookies. These chocolate chip cookies are large, round, gooey and full of chocolate! We are very lucky that the nice people at Drowsy Water Ranch have generously shared their recipe.
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
2 cups flour
2 cups old-fashioned oats
6 oz chocolate chips chopped pecans or walnuts to taste
Preheat over to 350 degrees F In medium bowl, combine the baking soda, baking powder, salt, flour and oats. Mix gently to combine
In a large bowl combine the butter and sugar and beat until combined. Next add eggs one by one. Lastly add the vanilla
Now it is time to add the dry ingredients to butter mixture. Use a wooden spoon or mixer on low to mix well. Next add the chocolate chips and nuts stirring well. The dough will be stiff. This will be an arm workout.
To shape the cookies, drop about ¼ cupfuls onto greased baking sheet with 3-4 inches between each cookie. Using an ice cream scoop is a good way to get uniform sizes.
Bake 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees until edges are golden brown but middle is still spongy. Cool for a few minutes before removing from cookie sheet and enjoy.
