Wyoming Whopper Cookies Recipe

Publisher Photo
These big country cookies fill up a hungry cowboy after a long ride rounding up cattle. But they're not just for wranglers! Our son, who's a geologist, packs them when he's working in the mountains and when he's fishing on the weekends. These treats are made to take along-in fact, I came up with this recipe while trying to match a commercial cookie that was good, but too soft to carry. My husband and I are semi-retired farmer/ranchers, living in northwestern Wyoming, east of Cody and near Yellowstone Park and the Bighorn Mountains. The land here is fertile, irrigated desert ground that produces sugar beets, pinto beans, alfalfa, barley for brewing and corn for silage.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 26, 2014

"These are the best cookies EVER! You can substitute different dried fruit - we really like dried cherries -- or use milk chocolate chips instead of semi sweet depending on your taste. I've also used creamy peanut butter - no matter what the substitute, they are great! I'd give more stars if they were available!"
