Reviews for Wyoming Cowboy Cookies
"These are hands down the BEST cookie! They are my husband's favorite! I make it just as it says, and cook about 10 min. :)"
"These have a great flavor. I think next time I'd like to try half shortening half butter or butter flavored shortening instead so they don't get so crispy. Toasting the coconut and pecans is a great touch!"
"I haven't made yet and will, but people were commenting that they were a tad dry. I think I will reduce the oats to 1-1/2 cups and watch the bake time and start with 10 minutes and I will also too reduce the sugar and I don't think I will toast the coconut or pecans. Will update after I make."
"I love the flavors in these cookies, but they seemed a little dry. After the first batch, I cut the cooking time down to 10 minutes. I took them to an office meeting and people really liked them."
"I had leftover "kisses" and chopped them up to make the chocolate chips. Think they really MADE them taste super good. Lots of compliments."
"Has anyone tried making half this recipe?just to update. I halved the recipe and it worked great. bake about 18 min."
"I needed to increase flour 2 1/2 to almost 3 cups and refrigerated dough between baking batches. . After that, they turned out great! I'm at 9,000 ft."
"This recipe was a catastrophe for me. I followed the directions and they ended up burning the bottoms resembling an odd chunky tuile. fell apart and were not edible as a cookie. tasted extremely sweet and some of the non burnt ones were decent as a topping for ice cream."
"These are the bomb! One of thee best cookie recipes I have now. Everyone raved about them gone in less than 24hrs.! lol Thank you for another hit....."
