Buffalo Chip Cookies

Buffalo Chip Cookies


I first made these cookies for Davis’ Pioneer Day Celebration.  Nothing like dressing up in overalls and dragging around a stick horse for a day and getting shaved with popsicle sticks and shaving cream at the Ole Barber Pole.  Throw in a “gold poke” and some vittles and you can call it a grand celebration.

I originally had to find a recipe to take to the pioneer simulation so Davis could get extra gold for his poke, however I have made this recipe quite a few times since then. I don’t need the golden incentive to make them anymore. I just like them.  Beware, the recipe makes a bunch although making a bunch of cookies doesn’t seem like much of a problem to me.

Buffalo Chip Cookies

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup shortening

2 cups brown sugar

2 cups granulated sugar

4 large eggs

2 teaspoon vanilla

4 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups oats

2 cups corn flakes

2 cups chocolate chips

1 cup coconut

1 cup chopped pecans

Cream shortenings and sugars.  Add eggs, one at a time.  In another bowl, mix together all dry ingredients.  Add to egg mixture.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place 1/2 cup scoops of cookie dough on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 15-18 minutes or until done.

Olivia made them tonight for Davis and his friends.


Looks like someone needs to visit the Ole Barber Pole!
