Test Kitchen Tips
For hearty cowboy appetites, double the size of these cookies. Just make sure to increase the oven time, baking these until they're golden brown.
Take care not to overbake, though: You want them to be crunchy on the outside and a bit chewy on the inside.
Leftover cookies are great for crumbling on top of ice cream.
