Cowboy Cookies

I have eaten all the Fig Rolls I made last week, I'm not ashamed as the figgy bit counted as one of my Five-a-Day. I can now compensate by making cookies with the chocolate chips my Gourmet Sister sent me. Flicking through the Field Guide to Cookies I decided to make 'Cowboy Cookies', maybe things would have been different on that Mountain if they had had a supply of these?!

Makes 24

230g Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
225g Butter
110g Sugar
110g Light Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
175g Rolled Oats
200g Chocolate Chips
115g Walnuts

  • Preheat the oven 180/350/Gas 4. Line two oven sheets.
  • Sieve the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and set aside.
  • In a stand mixer cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined.
  • Add the flour and mix on a low speed until just combined.
  • Stir in the oats, chocolate chips and walnuts.
  • Grab little balls of dough, about the size of a large walnut, place on the tray and flatten slightly.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes until golden and feel firm. Cool on a wire rack. Keep in an airtight container for 2 weeks, or freeze.
