The cowboy cookie, or often even called the everything cookies, Laura Bush cookies, DoubleTree style, and has several delicious ingredients in them.


These cookies are an oatmeal base cookie with 3 different kinds of fat for flavor, crunch, and softness.


I have adapted these cowboy cookies to be soft inside and crunchy outside. You can add so many variations and make them your own style.


These cowboy cookies are the best combination of flavors and one of our family's all-time favorites.

Some people do call them the everything cookie then we also tasted something similar at the Doubletree Hotel and they called the Doubletree cookies.

How did they get their name?



This truly is a terrific tasting cookie that can stand tall with pride.


The chewiness from the oats, the, of course, the outer layer of crispness from the shortening and butter make this a unique style of cookie.


The “Cowboy Cookie” name, I came across some very interesting history regarding this recipe, which included some of our First Ladies favorites, like Laura Bush.


Apparently, there were many cookie recipes that were printed throughout the years, with many different stories that we're told how they came about.
