Texas Cowboy Cookies. My guys devour them. Is it the cookie… or the name?
Everything’s better in Texas… or so I’m told. One of my favorite places to visit. So different from my native Pacific Northwest. These cookies would be one of those “better” things.
You’ve heard the phrase, “everything but the kitchen sink.” These Texas Cowboy Cookies remind me of that phrase. They’re sweet, chewy, and melt-in-your-mouth good.
I think of these so often as spring heads toward summer. But truly they’re seasonless. Just a great cookie with superb ingredients… and lots of them at that. It’s a cookie my guys love. First, maybe because of the name… but how can you beat chocolate, pecans, oatmeal and coconut?
