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!
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.
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.

- 1/2 c. semisweet chocolate chips

Layer the Mix:

These are easy to make, just add butter, vanilla extract, and an egg to the mix, incorporate well, and drop them onto a baking sheet. In 10-12 minutes, they'll have delicious Cowboy cookies! These mixes will be great to give to kids as a way to make and leave cookies for Santa.
