Cowboy Cookies

January 5, 2013


Author Notes: Cookie bake-off? These impossibly simple cowboy cookies are just what you need to take the win. Packed with oatmeal, pecans, chocolate chips and M&Ms, these cookies don't hold back. They’re a big, chewy, now-THAT'S-a-cookie kind of cookie. Like coconut? Add that, too. You can't go wrong with these babies. Mmm, yeehaw!misslofox
