Cowgirl Cookies. New Music From Delilah Rose and the Gunslingers.

Cowgirl Cookies
cats pets for poor people
I looked around the internet to see if I could find out the origin of the name Cowgirl Cookies, but was unsuccessful. Cowboy cookies are a thing, too, but no origins found there either. Possibly the addition of oats makes them hearty enough to fuel a hard working cowboy.

The difference between cowboy cookies and cowgirl cookies? It would be logical that the cowgirl cookies do not contain nuts, but that just isn’t the case.

Putting the big mystery aside, these Cowgirl Cookies are a respectable oat-based chocolate chipper with pecans and dried cranberries. The recipe was written on an envelope that was tucked inside a used cookbook that I got from my town’s book swap shed.

Cowboy Blues?

Yes, if it is this great new song from Australian band Delilah Rose and the Gunslingers. They describe their music as “good-natured countrified folk-a-billy”.

Check out Delilah Rose and the Gunslingers on Bandcamp where you can buy their music.

Cheers!

    These look wonderful! I will make them soon. I was especially happy to see the “original” recipe on the back of the envelope. One day a few years ago I was going through old papers. There on a sheet of pretty brittle yellow lined paper was the recipe for “Criss Cross Cookies” that was the first recipe I was ever aware of which my grandmother McIntosh used to make for us children. It was written in my mother’s handwriting. Both of them have been gone for many years. It was such a sweet gift to find that paper.

    Thanks for sharing this recipe. I want to try it and loved to have the memory of my grandmother and my mother fill my mind.

    Best wishes, Pattie
