Today I will teach you my favorite and tasty Cowgirl Cookies Recipe.
I love making special foods for themed events or holidays. Right now, even though it is just the beginning of March, Spring has arrived in Texas.
And to Texans, Spring means the Rodeo, Bluebonnets, and the great outdoors.
So, I am celebrating Spring with a batch of Cowgirl Cookies.
Cowgirl Cookies Recipe
The original recipe is actually called “Cowboy Cookies”, but since I add colorful M&M’s to the recipe, it required a new name.
Another reason these are named Cowboy/Cowgirl cookies is that they are not your average-size cookie!
We all know that everything is bigger in Texas, so these babies are formed using a large sized scoop and bake to a beautiful 4 inches in diameter.
So, celebrate Spring with a picnic or tea party, but make sure that Cowgirl cookies are on the menu!
So now let’s jump to the recipe, and yes once you made this cookie, I want to know how it taste, and did you like it or not, I love to hear from y’all guys.
