These Cowboy Cookies are similar to my popular Loaded Christmas Cowboy Cookies except I have added Christmas M&Ms and crushed pretzels to the coconut and pecans! These sweet, chewy cookies are sure to become a favorite for your holiday baking list!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place coconut and pecans on a parchment paper covered 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until toasted, watching very closely so they do not burn. Set aside to cool.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.
In another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture; beat well. Stir in the oats, M&Ms, crushed pretzels, dried cranberries and toasted coconut and pecans.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto parchment covered baking sheets.
Bake at 350 degrees F for about 10-12 minutes or until browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
For the pretzels, you can use any type of thin pretzel, such as regular pretzels, mini pretzels or pretzel sticks.
