Cowboy Cookies

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by SusanRW

These cookies were my favorites when I was growing up. My mom would have cookies waiting for me after I'd get home from school. These are now a big hit with my family, and my husband likes them so much that he learned how to make them himself so he doesn't have to wait on me!

These cookies taste great! The only problem I found was that in the recipe there is no where to add the salt. I just guessed, they turned out great anyway! Will make again!
