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