Cowboy Cookies

by Laura

These cowboy cookies recipe is one that I was introduced to after meeting my husband. It is my father-in-laws go to cookie recipe.

I did wonder how the cowboy cookie got its name. Some say it is because it originated in Texas. Others say it is because the hearty cookie can be kept for many long days in the west. Well, where ever the name originated, these cookies are amazing.

These cowboy cookies are a nice hybrid between a regular chocolate chip cookie and an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. They have oats in them but not to the extent you would find in a regular oatmeal cookie, but just enough to add a little heartiness to the cookie.

Now for some reason when I make these, I don’t ever think they taste as good as when my father-in-law makes them. I’ve never been sure why. It could be simply because, I believe things can taste better when you don’t have to make them yourself. Or maybe he makes them with just the right amount of love.
