Cowboy Cookies

Are you feeling Pink?  Pink is a color I love; those bright pinks of the summer blooming bougainvilleas, P!nk the wonderful singer, Pink for the sunset clouds…

Cowboy Cookies

When we say in Spanish that someone sees the world in Pink means that person is an optimist, someone that faces life easily, a woman/man that sees no problems at all or that always sees an easy way to solve them. So, let’s go Pink today and bake some Cowboy Cookies to have no fear of our problems and face life positively!!!

Cowboy Cookies

Sometimes you bump into a new recipe and you feel the urge to adopt it and add it to your favorite ones… this has been my love story with Cowboy cookies… I baked them for the first time a month ago and I haven’t given up on them since then! They are absolutely delicious and we eat them in the morning as part of our breakfast to get the energy and the good mood to face the day in pink ;D.

Cowboy Cookies

Maybe I should give them a Spanish name… galletas de avena (oat cookies)  would be too obvious, I rather call them Torero cookies or Peasant cookies… Mmmm, Toreros and pink are related; if you see a corrida, either the capote or/and the torero cloths will have Pink as a main color. And, on the other hand, Peasants and oat are related too… You decide which name fits them more :D.

Cowboy Cookies

I have found so many good recipes on Galletas de avena and Cowboy cookies in the internet that I could write a book on the subject… lol!  I finally picked some advise here, some ingredients there and made my own cookie recipe :D. Which I’m really pleased to share with you!


Ingredients for a batch of 20 to 24 cookies: 100 grs of white granulated sugar, 140 grs of light brown sugar, 226 grs of unsalted butter at room temperature, 2 eggs (at room temperature), 2 vanilla extract teaspoons, 260 grs of flour, 1 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda, 1/2 a teaspoon of salt, 200 grs of rolled oat, 1/2 a cup of toasted chopped hazelnuts and 1/2 a cup of chocolate chips.

  • Preheat your oven at 180ºC.
  • Use the electric mixer to beat the butter with the sugars and when it's creamy, add the eggs one by one beating it all well. Add the vanilla extract and reserve.
  • In a different bowl, pour the flour, the baking soda and salt and mix with a wire whisk. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and stir with the electric mixer or with a silicon spatula until the flour is mostly incorporated. Now pour the oats and stir again and finally add the hazelnuts and the chocolate chips.
  • Prepare an oven tray with parchment paper and use a spoon or an ice cream scoop to get the same amount of dough and place separately on the paper. Wet your hands and flatten the balls. I baked 8 cookies at a time because they spread and might get fixed one to another if they are too close.
  • Bake for 18 minutes or until they get golden on their edges. Let them cool over a wire rack and Enjoy!!!
