Food is a big holiday tradition in our family and these Cowboy Cookies go way back to my childhood. These were my grandmother's recipe and she only made them around the holidays. They are chocolate chip pecan oatmeal cookies and they are my absolute all-time favorite! I thought it time to share the recipe in a fun way by showing how you can make these as a gift mix to give to family and friends for the holidays, complete with a printable recipe card with directions for your recipient to make this fun cookie mix gift!

Making these is a breeze as you just gather the ingredients and your containers and layer the ingredients. The layering looks so pretty and you can do a bunch at once, seal them up, and decorate with a pretty ribbon and you have fun cookie mix gifts galore!

Rubbermaid TakeAlongs are the perfect containers for food gifts. Quik Clik Seal keeps the lids secure to help prevent spills and they've got a large tab for easy opening. They're also microwavable, top rack dishwasher and freezer safe, so your recipient can reuse them for a long time to come.

I'm using the Deep Squares in the limited edition colors and they're the perfect size for this mix.

Holiday TakeAlongs come in limited edition red, green, and holiday prints and are available at Walmart through the end of the holidays. You can find these in the Home Living section of the store near the kitchen storage items.
