If you can call a cookie "hearty," this would be that cookie. Cowpoke Cookies bring coconut, oatmeal, chocolate chips, and pecans together for a medley of flavors that are rugged enough for the Lone Ranger himself. These are the perfect cookie to make when you can't quite decide what mood you're in. They taste (and smell) amazing straight out of the oven and are a tall glass of milk's perfect companion. This easy cookie recipe is one you can whip up any time you're feeling a sweet tooth coming on, so keep it near by and avoid a cookie crisis.
