A yee-hawingly good dessert

Pull on your chaps and grab your lasso; it's time for cowboy cookies! The name makes no sense but the great flavor of these cookies makes it irrelevant. Cowboy cookies are just oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with a cooler name. These easy to make cookies are perfect for an afternoon snack, a bake sale or the ideal end to a delicious meal.

Prep time is about 15-20 minutes. Cooking time is 10-12 minutes. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
