Cowpoke cookies

25 Jun

Bakerella is a genius. Not only did she come up with the cutest layered cookie jar gifts to give our Stampede guests, she provides printable labels for them. J’adore.
We would love to hand these out to friends at a Stampede backyardecue.

recipe adapted from bakerella

1 1/3 cup all purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup & leveled
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup cooking oats
3/4 cup m&ms
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 – 1/2 cup chopped pecans
(some people add coconut, but you may have trouble fitting it into the gift jar.)
Stir all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.


1 slightly beaten egg
1/2 cup butter (melted slightly in the microwave)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Use the back of a large spoon to work it all together.

Roll the cookie dough into 1 1/2 inch balls, place on a parchment covered baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven. Makes 26-28 cookies.

More from Bakerella:
Start with a 1 quart smooth Ball jar.

Layer the ingredients:

First: flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt
Second: oats
Third: m&ms
Fourth: chocolate chips
Fifth: brown sugar
Sixth: white sugar
Seventh: chopped pecans

Pack each level down really tightly. The ingredients should be flush to the top of the lid when you seal it.

To decorate the top of the jars, use suede cord and western fabric: gingham or bandana patterns.
Cut the fabric into 6-inch squares and the suede into 25 inch pieces. Place the fabric on top and tie ribbons around the lid to hold it in place.
