  • Does anyone have a recipe for Cow Patty cookies?
    I am looking for a recipe for Cow Patty cookies. We used to get them when I was in college, years ago. Not sure if that is the real name, or what the school named them.

    I remember them being chocolate with maybe oats in them. I do not believe that they were baked.

    I hope someone can help me relive my youth! I would like to make them for my family.

    Laura Bush's Cowboy Cookies
    3 cups all-purpose flour
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1 tablespoon baking soda
    1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) butter (at room temperature)
    1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
    1 1/2 cups packed light-brown sugar
    3 eggs
    1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
    3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
    2 cups sweetened flake coconut
    2 cups chopped pecans (8 ounce)

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in bowl.

    In 8-quart bowl, beat butter on medium speed until smooth and creamy, 1 minute. Gradually beat in sugars; beat to combine, 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each. Beat in vanilla extract.

    Stir in flour mixture until just combined. Add chocolate chips, oats, coconut and pecans.

    For each cookie, drop 1/4 cup dough onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing 3 inches apart. Bake for 17 to 19 minutes, until edges are lightly browned; rotate sheets halfway through.

    Remove cookies from rack to cool.

    Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

    NOTE: For 6 dozen small cookies, use 2 tablespoons dough for each. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 to 18 minutes.

    Cow Patty Cookies

    2 cups white sugar
    5 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    1/2 cup unsalted butter
    1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    3 cups quick cooking oats
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts
    1/2 cup milk

    Cover baking sheets with wax paper and set aside.
    Combine sugar and cocoa in a large saucepan. Stir in milk, butter and peanut butter. Cook and stir over medium heat until butter melts and mixture is combined, about 5-20 minutes. Remove from heat.
    Stir in the vanilla, oats and nuts, and mix thoroughly. Take a teaspoon and scoop out a spoonful of the mixture; drop the spoonful onto the waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the mixture. Place in the refrigerator until the cookies are cooled and set. Store the cookies in an airtight container.

    Thanks everyone! I still think that MomOf3MS has the closest recipe because there were not any nuts or other flavors in the cookies. But, I love butterscotch and coconut, so those recipes will be tested next!

    This sounds like what we always called Boiled Cookies:

    2cups sugar
    ½ cup milk
    1 stick butter/margarine
    4 TBSP. Cocoa
    ½ cup peanut butter
    2 ½ cups quick oats
    2 tsp. vanilla
    Chopped nuts - optional

    Mix sugar, milk, butter, cocoa in saucepan. Bring to rolling boil. Then cook 1 ½ minutes longer. Add peanut butter, oats, vanilla and nuts. Beat together and drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper to cool.

    Don't know if this is what you are looking for, but it has always been a childhood favorite. I think my recipe is close to Momof3ms recipe except mine has peanut butter in it. It just makes them a little creamier to me.

    I make mine like the Cow Patty recipe I found on allrecipes, but it has a different name, and I always omit the nuts, since my kids don't like nuts.
    False

  • RE: Does anyone have a recipe for Cow Patty cookies?
    I meant to add that when I made these I added peanut butter to mine too, but now due to my dh having a peanut allergy we omit the peanut butter. I hope you enjoy your cookies!
