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!

Hi just wondering…by ‘all purpose flour’ do u mean plain flour or self raising flour? :)
i cant wait to make these!

Canning jars at hardware store were much less expensive than smooth jars at hobby shop. . Printed the recipe on card stock, punched a hole in it and hung it on the ribbon. Made a funnel out of 8.5×11 paper which made putting the ingredients in the jar easier. Found that if we divided the flour into 1/3, 1/2 and 1/2 cups and pressed down after adding each amount, it worked much better. Pressing down was very important for ingredients to fit into jar. Used pastel colors of gingham fabric for baby shower where sex of baby is unknown. Very pretty. Thanks for the idea.

Sofie said...

I made these cookies with m&m’s to test the recipe before I will make them with the children in my class for the christmas market at school.
They were a bit too hard, I think I used the wrong butter or I let them a bit too long in the oven. Are there other tips to have more shewy/soft cookies?
Thanks for any reactions!!

I loved this cookie idea! The first time I made them it was a disaster but I improved. It was hard to push down the flour at first. I couldn’t fit the white sugar and pecans in. That is okay though because I was going to bake them myself. I hope my class loves this great idea!

Molly said...

I loved this recipe! I made them for class and my class loved them! They all wanted the recipe and I directed them to this website! My demonstration went amazing! My friends like them and were asking for them whenever they came to my house. I used Thanksgiving colors-no pink for the guys- and it turned out amazing! I can not wait tell the next time I make these! I might make them for Christmas gifts, Halloween treats, New Years late snacks, Easter surprises, Birthday gifts and Fourth of July waiting for fireworks snacks! They were amazing! Thanks so much for the great recipe, instructions and support! I might even use them to bribe my coaches to like me more and get me on the “A” team! I hope they like them as much as I did! But really who doesn’t like cookies? I am a very social person and I know very many people all over the world and no matter what religion or race the person is they ALL like cookies! Everyone I have given these cookies to (which is a lot of people) have loved them. My doctor said that they were worth the extra calories. They are totally worth it and I agree 100%. They taste especially good when you make an ice cream sandwich out of two cookies and Ben and Jerry’s ice cream! Yum! Delicious! One more thanks to the amazing people who made these and the also amazing people who created Bakerella! Thanks so much!

DJ said...

I am in the process of making these for Christmas gifts but am really having trouble fitting ANY of the pecans in the jar at the end. I know you said to pack it in tightly but was wondering exactly what your trick was to get all the ingredients to fit? They are turning out cute other than that. I made a batch to attach 3 or 4 in a Baggie to each one as a sample so they know what the “finished” cookie is supposed to taste like. Your advice would be appreciated. Thanks for a neat idea!

These are the perfect idea for teacher gifts! I’m mid production line and just figured out that the ingredients do not fit. I’ve double checked my jars. They are 1 quart Ball jars. I’ve double checked the ingredients. Everything is fine… but I can’t fit the sugar or the nuts! I’ve tried smashing, but am barely able to make extra space. Have I used the wrong size of M&M’s or chocolate chips?

I made these with 3 classes of elementary school students to donate to a children’s charity for the holidays. The kids LOVED filling the jars in layers, covering them with festive fabric and attaching cards they made with the recipe on the back. It’s a great project to do with kids. I baked some up to give to all the kids who helped out. I am sure they will LOVE them – and so will the families that receive them. Thanks!

Haydee @ {how sweet life is} said...

Just put a bunch of these together to give out as favors for my twin girls’ third birthday party this sunday, just two days shy of Christmas; The theme is cookie swap party! I don’t know how you fit everything in, lol! I cut out 1/4 cup of each m&ms and chocolate chips, and did not add the pecans either, to make it all fit in one jar! I used red and green m&m’s, because I couldn’t find pink, and because I want it to work for boys and girls. I’m calling them ‘cookies for santa’ when I gift them. Now just hoping the batch I saved for us will turn out right when I bake them for my girls! Thank you for the cute idea! Will post pictures on my blog once they’re all done up nice and pretty! xoxo

I was pretty nervous about these once I put the dough together. It was very crumbly and didn’t taste good (had to try the dough, haha). The outcome was fantastic! We did them with holiday m&ms for santa and I used white chocolate chips instead. The whole family loved them!

I made these for holiday gifts this year with red and green M&M’s. I could not fit the pecans in, so I tied them to the outside as an optional addition. Also cut down on the amount of each sugar a bit, and they came out delicious! I have given away 22 Jars this year. Super fun gift!

These are incredible! I made a jar up yesterday to give to my friends as a 6th wedding anniversary present – Anniversary Cookies.
I love the single colour M ‘n’ M’s, I wanted to do that but could only find regular bags so theirs are multicoloured.
Was thinking green and yellow for Spring, blue for Winter etc.
The cookies look so scrummy I’m going to make a batch to eat all to myself right now!!
Love the idea for gifting. I’m going to be making a lot of themed versions this year for all my family and friends here in Leicestershire, UK.
Thank you again for the recipe, you are a STAR!!

I made these as office and teacher gifts for Christmas. They were fantastic. I also had trouble fitting them in the jar, so I just attached the nuts with ribbon on the side. I told them it was for allergies, so it was fine. The cookies were delish, and everyone loved them. Next time I will try mini-M&Ms I think, just to mix it up.
I’m wondering if the variation in sizes that people are experiencing has to do with actual mason jars versus the rounded craft jars. I used actual mason jars, and I am now wondering if the craft jars might be slightly bigger?
Thanks for the tutorial! Loved it!

My daughter & I went to a baby shower yday & these were made up used as gifts to those who won a game :) my daughter won one of the games & got one of these adorable cookie mix’s. She is almost 11 and loves to bake, so this was right up her alley! I have to say…. THESE WERE THE BEST COOKIES EVER!!! Honestly, hands down the best!! Our cookie jar did not have the m&m’s or pecans. Which was fine cuz my family does not like pecans in their cookies, and there was so many choc chips that i think having the m&m’s could’ve been a lil much. Still the best cookies ever! And the dough… Amazing! My daughter & I loved baking these cookies & we all enjoyed eating them! I highly recommend this recipe!! We will be making these again very soon!!

Just bought all the stuff (minus the M&M’s) I need to make these. Buying the candy by colour is very pricey, so tomorrow I’m about to go buy a discounted giant bag and sort the colours myself.

Jars + ingredients I didn’t have (flour, baking soda, chocolate chips, and brown sugar was 28$. Add the candy I’ll get tomorrow plus the ribbon I bought… this whole project will give me 12 jars for just under 40$

That’s around 3$ a jar. :) I am making boy colours for baby shower prizes, and this will save me money on finding decent gifts. :D

I’ve actually been saving Pickle Jars and Honey Jars all year long (I have about 40 now) just so I can do this little project for Holiday Gifts. Thanks for the recipe and the easy instructions and pictures! You’ve made my project VERY easy!!!

I can’t find the jars that you used in Ontario would mason jars work just as good?

This cookie is amazing. I made the jars for our cowgirl party and received raving comments from parents when they baked them. Now I prepare a few jars and keep them in the panty.

Just made two jars of them for Secret Santa presents! They look adorable with red and green m&ms, and were so cheap to put together! (I got adorable quart-sized jars from the dollar store, and discounted holiday m&ms!)

Of course I had to do a tial run to see how they would taste. Let’s just say they are gone. My friends & family ate them all the minute they came out of the oven. I just completed my assembly line of making 24 of them. I can’t wait to give them out at my annual christmas party. Thanks for sharing this great idea.

I am in the process of making these right now. It is VERY important to pack each layer down as you put them in the jar. I have a batch in the oven now. When adding the butter, egg, and vanilla, I found it was easier to use my hands to mix everything together. Just wash your hands really good! :)
