Cowgirl Cookies for Breast Cancer

When I was home for Spring Break my sister pulled out a jar of cookie mix that my mom had bought for a fundraiser for Breast Cancer Awareness. They were absolutely wonderful - full of mixins and they baked up gooey in the center and crunchy on the outside. I mean, just looking at that picture makes me want to whip up another batch.

The ingredients were listed, but the amounts weren't so I had to guess at those. Here's an idea of what was inside so maybe you can play around with the recipe. I modified it to include what we found in our own jar.

Cowgirl Cookies:

1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup cooking oats
3/4 cup butterscotch chips
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips - I also added about 1/2 cup of milk chocolate chips
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 – 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Mix in 1/2 cup melted butter, 1 tsp vanilla, and 1 egg

Give a good stir and roll into walnut-sized balls. Place on a cookies sheet about 2 inches apart (make a tester tray to see how much they really spread) and bake for 11-13 minutes at 350 degrees.
