Cowboy Cookies

These are Mac's current go-to cookie.  So delicious, perfect texture, just the right amount of goods... they can be made with or without the pecans (but you can hardly tell they're in there!)  The recipe is meant to be a cookie-in-a-jar that you can give as gifts, so its a cinch to make!  Thanks, Felecia for the recipe!

1 1/3 c. rolled oats
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 c. chopped pecans
1 c. semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/3 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. melted butter
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

Directions for packaging:

Layer dry ingredients in a 1 quart jar in the order given.  Press each layer firmly in place before adding the next layer.

To bake:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix together the dry ingredients, butter, egg, and vanilla.  You may have to use your hands to complete mixing (I just throw it all the in kitchenaid).  Bake 8-12 minutes.
