I would like to share this Cripsy and Chewy Cowboy Cookies with you so you can start baking for the Holiday Seasons. This makes a great Holiday Gift for your Families or Friends. All you need is a beautiful tin can to package these cookies.
To be honest, it seems like no one knows why the cookies are called ‘Cowboy Cookies”. There is speculation that “it’s hardy enough to survive long days out west, while others claim the recipe was developed in Texas where cowboys are apparently prolific.” (source Huff Post)
If you are not planning to bake for the Holidays, I assure you that you will enjoy this Crispy Chewy Cowboy Cookies for anytime during the day/night. I love having these cookies with a cup of coffee during the day! 😋
For mid-night snack to satisify your sweet tooth, I would recommend to have these cookies with a cup of milk.
The chewiness of the cookies is from the hearty Oats in addition to the multiple textures when you take a bite: the flakiness of Coconut (we used unsweetend coconut in this recipe), the chocolatey flavor from chocolate chips, the nutty flavor from the lightly toasted pecans
