Mix things up!

Cookie Stack

Yeehaaa… yum yum… it’s Cowboy Cookies. Or, in this case, Cowgirl Cookies.

A friend introduced these to me and I love them. Especially the name. Cowboy Cookies. Cowboy Cookies. Cowboy Cookies. Rolls off the tongue doesn’t it? Well, I took the traditional oats, chocolate chips and pecans this cookie is known for and added some pink m&m’s to make them, well, more girly.

Cookie Ingredients

But why stop there. I also made a few cookie mixes to try out as a test run for a gift idea. You see, I missed said friend’s birthday (sorry friend) and I wanted to make up for it. So, I took her basic recipe and made a few adjustments so I could fit all the ingredients into these jars.

Cowgirl Cookies

They’re smooth Ball jars made especially for crafts. Smooooooth. No embossed logos in the glass. Nice. And with a little fabric, labels and a brown suede bow, they’re perfect little gifts.

Four Jars

But which one should I give her? It actually matters because I made four different variations. If you notice in the photo above, some of them have more oats, more flour or more sugar. I was trying different combinations to get all the ingredients to fit.

Oh and note to self: Use a ruler when attaching labels next time.

Luckily, the first test batch I made, worked. Yes!

So, here’s the recipe:

Cowgirl Cookies

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
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 – 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Stir all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

Cowgirl Cookies

Add

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. You may even need to use your hands to get everything incorporated.

Unbanked cookies

Then 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. I got about 26-28 cookies out of these.

Here’s how they came out.

Cowgirl Cookies

Pretty and tasty. But I still want to try the other mixes later, and if one tastes better I’ll make sure and update the recipe. Besides, I want to know how long these will last in jars. Any ideas?

Want to make some cute cookie mix gifts, too? Here’s how.

Cookie Labela

Start with a 1 quart smooth Ball jar. I found these at Hobby Lobby craft store.

Layer the ingredients in like this:

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. I mean it. Pack it in. Or else it won’t all fit. Also, I added the chopped pecans last, because if the ingredients were too much or not enough, then I could add more or less pecans to adjust. I’d rather sacrifice nuts than chocolate, you know. The ingredients should be flush to the top of the lid when you seal it up.

Suede Bow

See. There’s some of the pecans peeking out from under the fabric.

To decorate the top of the jars, get a spool of suede cord and some fabric. I really wanted to find some pink western bandana fabric, but this will do.
Anyway, 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.

Labeling

For the labels, you’ll need some card stock, a paper punch and double-sided tape.

You can use the pink labels I made if you want. DOWNLOAD THE PDF HERE.

Cookie Jar Labels

I also included one for the baking instructions and a label for Cowboy Cookies in brown if you want to gift these to boys or girls.

Cowboy Cookies

Note: you can change the color of m&ms and give them as Halloween gifts, or Christmas gifts, too. Check out the seasonal m&ms in the candy aisle. They are usually available in special holiday colors or themes. The pink ones were in the Breast Cancer awareness bag. Also another great gift idea.

Enjoy!

Oh how cute! I totally made these as favors at my nephew’s 1st Birthday party this weekend :) It was a racecar theme, so instead of m&ms, I used ghirardelli chocolate chips (because they’re the size of m&ms, lol) and white chocolate chocolate chips to look like the checkered flag pattern. Then I realized, m&ms would have worked with the chips, haha. Oh well.
I had to half the recipe because I could only find pint-sized jars…and I didn’t make a batch to see if I halfed correctly. Hope so! Haha. Also, I forgot to half the egg, butter, and vanilla on the instruction card…sooo…hope that works? Ah!

Anyway, I used canning jars and just put the checkered fabric on top of the jar before twisting the outer ring on..it worked just as well as tying with string. :)

If you have a Food Saver you could seal them and they would keep for months. Only if you could hide them from your family for that long.

They are very beautiful, I enjoy making up cookie mixes at Xmas time to give as just a little something to friends and neighbors.

For some reason when I baked these, my cookies turned out a lot more puffier. I’m sure I got my numbers right with measuring, is there a reason why it would stay puffy?

Medisabella said...

Loved them! My friend (we’re Finnish) gave me this kind of jar as a birthday gift in April, and I made these last week. The ingredients were still good, the brown sugar was a bit lumpy, but not much.
The cookies didn’t look quite the same, and the dough was surprisingly greasy, but still I liked the result. Maybe I messed something up with the cups, since we use decilitres in Finland.
My friend had put some mint and chocolate candies, but I guess M&Ms would be better.
And I love the idea of the ingredients readily in a pretty jar! I’m so going to use this on someone :D!

Thanks for the Cowboy Cookie recipe, I made them today! I made them first using regular oats and the next batch with quick cooking oats. I liked the quick cooking oats much better. I used light blue and dark blue M&M’s for a boys baptism favor. They turned out great!

Here are the cookies in a jar… We would just replace the pink m&m’s for red and green and I could also make tags that say “Santa’s Cookies” to put on the front. I thought it would be cute to get some fun ribbon and fabric {kinda like the picture}
Thank you so so much for watching Averlin today. It means so much to me.

hi there – another fan of yours!
I have put these jars together TWICE in the past three weeks, batches of 2 dozen each for my daughters’ birthday parties. They were hands-down the NUMBER ONE party favor! Mom’s were emailing me telling me how they were eating these cookies for breakfast :)
Keep up the fun and inspiring work!

Thank you for sharing this idea – it is fantastic. I made these for last year’s Christmas presents and it went down a treat! I bought 1l jars and packed it all in :)
I just notice the other day that my mum still has the jar of mix in her pantry, so I’d better get her to make it then I’ll comment again about the quality of the mix almost a year on!

Thanks a lot for sharing. I’ve been browsing the web for cookies mix in a jar, and by far yours are the cutest !!
One thing though: i tried the recipe and the cookies stayed in balls !.. So I overcooked them in hope that they will faltten, but they never did. Which in the end is pretty funny: they tast and look like little biscotti-balls :-)
But I was wondering if I’m doing anything wrong. Do you have any idea by any chance ?
Any how, thanks a lot for sharing: you have an awesome blog :-)

Quick question, because I’m stuck.

1 – Are those ingredients only for 1 jar or do you have to share it between the 4 jars?
2 – What does it mean: “butter – melted slightly in the microwave” ? If I put it in the microwave, it’ll melt. Does it OK, if I don’t put it in the microwave, but leave at room temperature for a day or so?

Please help asap! :)

PS: I’ve fallen in love with the site and especially this idea :D

I swapped out the pink m&ms for green and red. I also put red and white polka dotted fabric on the top. Then I called them “Santa Cookies -in a jar-” I gave them out as gifts and sometimes I added personalized aprons to round out the gift.

Kelly said...

I made a bunch of these for Christmas this year using the green and red M&Ms.

To be more cost effective I used cello bags tied with a ribbon instead of jars, and didn’t use pecans. Actually, I didn’t use pecans because a lot of people I know don’t like nuts–but it really helped with the cost since I made quite a few of these.

The bags worked out better than expected, as I was afraid the layers would fall into each other and ruin the “prettiness.” I used 3 lb cello bags, which turned out to be the perfect size for this recipe (without pecans–possibly with as well). As I added each layer, I packed them in very well to avoid any ingredients falling to the bottom. I also had to switch the order of the layers. Here’s how I did it:

1. Sugar
2. Flour/salt/baking powder/baking soda
3. Oats
4. Chocolate chips
5. Brown sugar
6. M&Ms

The layers aren’t as evenly distributed, as all the white ingredients are at the bottom, but they still turned out pretty cute. Again, when using bags, the idea is to pack each layer down very well. Also, when I packed each layer, I kind of “cupped” them a little and then poured the next layer into the middle before packing them down. I don’t know if that helped, but I was worried about things falling through to the bottom.

I just thought I’d share how I did mine in case anyone wants to do these on more of a budget. While not as pretty as the jars, they were still cute and festive. And perfect for the gift baskets I’m making.

Also, I made a batch of the cookies to test them out, and they were delicious of course!

SO CUTE!! I just made a ton of these as Thank you gifts. I dont know how you got the pecans in there though??? HA!! I was full to the top with the sugar and I was using everything I could to mash the stuff down. Then I decided to put the pecans in a cute little bag attached to the ribbon (just in case theres any nut allergies) ok ok… because I couldnt get them to fit. But the nut allergy thing sounds better :)

You are fabulous. Thank you for always having such fun ideas!!!

These are adorable but the brown sugar turns ROCK SOLID very quickly in the jar. Cannot even break it up enough to get it out. I had to dump the rest of the ingredients into a bowl (tilting the brown sugar hard disc sideways to slide by it) and then tried microwaving the brown sugar with a bowl of water next to it in the microwave…no luck. Could let it sit overnight with a slice of bread in there, but am just adding fresh brown sugar in its place.

Also- for those still wondering- you can find individual colored m&ms at the candy store or some larger grocery stores. You can pick and choose how much of which color you want and just pay by the weight.

For the bag question- I would assume about 2 jars if you are buying by the bag (not as cheap). With 3/4c in each jar and most bags having two cups…. maybe three if you just divide the bag three ways. My 2cents.

Thank you again- this is perfect.

We made these at our last MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) meeting. They were a huge hit, cute and yummy!

Thanks, Bakerella! I made these with my son’s Kindergarten class for all their teachers (classroom, gym, library, art…12 in all) The kids loved measuring and tasting all the separate ingredients and they turned out so cute!

I LOVE this idea. I want to use if for a baby shower I am hosting. I was thinking I could call it “Shower Cookies” or something. The only issue is that shower cookies sound soggy and awful, so the name may need some work.

these cookies are delicious! i didn’t think they were going to turn out because the batter is very dry but once you roll the dough into a ball, they’re fine. i had to squish mine down a bit cus i found that they didn’t expand very much. my whole family can’t wait for me to make them again. this is definitely a recipe for my recipe box

You’re wondering how long they’ll last? Well, I received my jar as a gift a little over a year ago, and judging from the tag, I think they were leftovers from Christmas. So I think my jar’s been sitting around about 18 months. We finally got around to making them today and they are YUMMY!

This is absolutely adorable. I am using this for my sisters Bridal Shower gift favor. Her theme is “Cowgirl” so it fits perfectly. I will also use this for future gifts like at Christmas, etc. You’re so creative. Thanks so much for sharing with all of us.
