I would even consider these cookies to be a bit healthy. Thanks for sharing them with us on foodie friday.
I like to think of them healthy myself 😉 Thank you for the Foodie Friday link party…love them!
These look really great! I’ve been searching for a recipe to make for a cookie exchange coming up, I’ve pinned these and added them to the selection I’m trying to narrow down, lol! Thanks for linking them up last week to the Lovely Ladies party, I wanted to let you know I’ve featured them there this week 🙂

Awesome, thank you!!!! …I hope you are able to “narrow” your list down, my goodness that is not a job I envy, lol. I love love love cookies way to much! Love the Lovely Ladies party 🙂
hi, your cowboy cookies were intriguing but confusing. The directions mention blending the butter and sugarS and also omits when to add the baking powder and soda etc. it may need proofing.
I made the adjustments to the directions and they are delicious! Thanks for sharing.
Hi Jodie! Thank you so much for that, thankfully I now have help with editing these days 😉 I’m glad that you got through the recipe and found them delicious!
