I just had a couple of these out of the cookie jar. I swear they're better the next day than they are fresh from the oven. I'll bet these would be a good cookie to pack and mail. Drat... she'll make more of these this weekend to send to her boyfriend at college, and then I'll have to sample more...THIS IS A SUPER COOKIE RECIPE!!!!!

These cookies are the best Cowboy cookies ever! I added dried cranberries, blueberries and cherries and never had so many compliments. I am throwing all the other recipes away!

These are really yummy! I've had requests to make more and have already made 2 batches! Everyone who has tried them loves them as well! I have added cinnamon to my 2nd batch and it tasted way good!
