I recently added a variation of my Cowboy Cookies to my arsenal of treats. Inspired by Grandchildren's Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies from Chef Supreme (npr story), they start with my Cowboy Cookie recipe, but substitute as follows:
- Reduce flour from 2 1/4c to 2c
- Reduce brown sugar from 3/4c to 1/2c
- Add 1/4c wheat germ
- Add 1/4c Nestlé NESQUIK® powder
Bake a little longer, perhaps 12 minutes, at a lower temperature, about 350 degrees.
I think they're a nice change of page, perhaps superior to the original Cowboy Cookie recipe.
