Cow Chip Cookies

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


8-9 dozen

From the name, it shouldn't surprise you that this cookie recipe came from a 4-H student of my husband's (we're both teachers)! I like the fact it makes a big batch. And, at the holidays, you can use red and green M&M's to give them a festive look.
