This is the most delicious cookie recipe and I can’t wait to make some again. Slightly chewy, with a consistency and texture I remember from childhood.

Cowboy Cookies

These cookies are really delicious, and a nice, subtle change from the traditional chocolate chip cookie. The texture was melt-in-your mouth. They were gone in about two days, and then my kids asked me to make more.

I’m keeping this recipe as my favorite oatmeal cookie! Loved it! Can’t keep out of the batter!
