Cowgirl Cookies for Breast Cancer

    When I was home for Spring Break my sister pulled out a jar of cookie mix that my mom had bought for a fundraiser for Breast Cancer Awareness. They were absolutely wonderful - full of mixins and they baked up gooey in the center and crunchy on the outside. I mean, just looking at that picture makes me want to whip up another batch.

    The ingredients were listed, but the amounts weren't so I had to guess at those. Here's an idea of what was inside so maybe you can play around with the recipe. I modified it to include what we found in our own jar.

    Cowgirl Cookies:

    1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 cup cooking oats
    3/4 cup butterscotch chips
    3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips - I also added about 1/2 cup of milk chocolate chips
    3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1/3 – 1/2 cup chopped pecans

    Mix in 1/2 cup melted butter, 1 tsp vanilla, and 1 egg

    Give a good stir and roll into walnut-sized balls. Place on a cookies sheet about 2 inches apart (make a tester tray to see how much they really spread) and bake for 11-13 minutes at 350 degrees.
