Cowboy Cookies

No one really knows the reason behind the name cowboy cookies.  If I had to hazard a guess I would say they remind me a lot of trail mix with all the different ingredients thrown in the batter.  Wherever they got there name matters little with you bite into one of these amazing treats.

Yields 6-7 dozen cookies
