Homemade Gifts-- Cowboy Christmas Cookies in a Jar

We started a tradition of passing out cookies in a jar to our neighbors and my husbands co-workers each Christmas.

Usually I make Julia's Best Chocolate Chip Cookies-- but after 4 years I got tired of making them.

So I searched around for a more fun recipe.

Enter Bakerella.

She has a fantastic site full of beautiful, yummy looking treats.

I was eager to try her recipe for Cowboy (or cowgirl) Cookies this Christmas.

 They turned out awesome!

Here's what I had left after husband took 7 to work this morning.

Um, why do you have like 10 times as much presents under your tree then we do. We have like 3. 3 presents. That's it. I'm coming to your house.

I want to steal this cookie idea next year.

I love this idea. My Wyoming cowboy is now an Alabama redneck... but I think he'll love giving these as gifts next year. (I will, too!) Thanks, and I'm pinning this! :)
