My son wasn’t feeling well recently so we decided to make cookies together because surely they would make him feel better (they did). While we were preparing the ingredients for these cookies my son said that he thought we should also add white chocolate chips to the mix… I love that he is already adapting recipes to suit his 5 year old tastes. These cowboy cookies turned out to be one of my very favorite cookies – EVER. I loved the combination of ingredients and how soft and chewy the cookies were. My son loved them and said they really made him feel better and my daughter was thrilled to come home from school to freshly baked cookies.
