Week 50: Cowboy Cookies (Wyoming)

Cowboy cookies are easy to make, and a delicious treat! These cookies are chewy and soft inside, and crispy on the outside.

Jump to the recipe!

They contain an oatmeal cookie base and are filled with chocolate chips, pecans/walnuts, and shredded coconut.

Cowboy Cookies are said to be a cookie that cowboys on the trail enjoyed. They were also a quick and easy way to get nutrients for the long travels that cowboys made.

Today I made my last official state dessert, however next Sunday I will celebrate with a final dish to wrap up my 50 state adventure! Stay tuned for more. :)
