I made these cookies last year for a social gathering and people raved about them. They are one of the highest rated cookies at christmas-cookies.com (http://www.christmas-cookies.com/recipes/recipe524.laura-bushs-cowboy-cookies.html). The only part of the recipe I change is I omit one cup of oatmeal. The cookies will be flatter when you take them out of the oven because of the this, but they’ll also be nice and crispy and chewy. Eight days until Christmas!
