I have heard about cowboy cookies from the likes of friends and family, but have never actually given them a go myself…until this past weekend. The Baked Explorations cookbook has been a go-to for me. But it definitely earned its keep in the cupboard with this recipe for Cowboy Cookies. When I tell you that I ate a dozen of them before I was able to Zero Dark Thirty them out of the house, I’m not exaggerating. Of course it was a baker’s dozen. I figured with all that oatmeal they had to be pretty healthy. I have yet to find a paying job as a cookie taste tester, but if I was I would rate these a perfect ten.
