Cowboy Cookies

Cowboy Cookies

Cowboy Cookies 1

I met a dear of friend whom I haven’t seen in about 8 years the other day at the park. We have been friends since the second grade. She was in town with her family and we had a couple hours to catch up. We finally got to meet one another’s kids and talk life is if no time had passed. It was such a refreshing time and I love how true friendships pick up right where they left off.

We decided to have a picnic at the park and I had treated Cooper to bacon mac n cheese and a cowboy cookie. This inspired my cravings for more oatmeal cookies but the whole gambit was involved in these delicious cowboy cookies.

Meanwhile, Michael is not a fan of oatmeal cookies so I made him his treat and than proceeded to make these for me. :) Needless to say, he still adored these cookies as well and ate quite a few….not trying to throw him under the bus or anything, but the truth must be told. :)
