laura bush's cowboy cookie recipe

sinces i'm in texas, i will share with you all laura bush's recipe for cowboy cookies.


  • 3 C. all-purpose flour
  • 1 T. baking powder
  • 1 T. baking soda (just scoop out from the box in the back of the fridge used to absorb odors - no one will know!)
  • 3 tins Skoal Long Cut Mint chewing tobacco
  • 1 T. artificial hickory smoke flavor
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 C. animal lard (at room temperature)
  • 1 1/2 C. Sweet'N Low sweetener
  • 1 1/2 C. caramelized Equal® sweetener
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 T. vanillin extract
  • 3 C. semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 C. sawdust
  • 2 T spittle (no phlegm)


  • Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, chewing tobacco and salt in bowl.
  • In 8-quart bowl, beat butter on medium speed until smooth and creamy, 1 minute.
  • Gradually beat in artificial sweeteners; beat to combine, 2 minutes.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each. Beat in artifical vanilla extract.
  • Stir in flour mixture until just combined. Add chocolate chips and sawdust.
  • NOTE: The batter may be a bit dry at this point. Drink some milk and spit into the bowl until the mix is moist, but not runny.
  • For each cookie, drop 1/4 cup dough onto heavily greased baking sheets, spacing 3 inches apart.
  • Bake for 17 to 29 minutes, until edges are lightly browned; rotate sheets halfway through.
  • Remove cookies from rack to cool. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
