Valentine Cowgirl Cookies

 recipe from

I am not much of a cookie person. When searching for some Valentine's Day recipe ideas, I came across this recipe for Cowgirl Cookies. The name is really what got me first. They just sound interesting. Upon further reading, I found out these are really Cow"boy" cookies but with red, white and pink M&Ms, so the baker changed the name. Not only do I think they look great for a Valentine's Day snack, they are so very yummy too. Needless to say, they didn't last very long.

1-1/3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup cooking oats
3/4 cup Valentine M&Ms
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 slightly beaten egg
1/2 cup butter, melted slightly in the microwave
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Stir the first 10 ingredients in a large bowl. Mix the egg, melted butter and vanilla into the dry ingredients; using the back of large spoon to work it all together. You may need to use your hands to get everything incorporated.

Roll the cookie dough into 1-1/2" balls. Place on greased or parchment covered baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes.

Makes 26-30 cookies.
