Cowboy Joe

A person isn’t supposed to play favorites – or at least admit to them – but my Uncle Joe was special for me. He was a true cowboy, big and blustery, with a huge belly laugh, and honest kindness for both horses and humans. This cowboy cookie is an oatmeal drop cookie with chocolate chunks, pecans, and rolled in cornflakes. The result is chewy and crunchy and makes me smile – just like my uncle.
