Wyoming Whopper Cookies
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.
