FAt Friday.....Yahoo for Cowboys!!

Good Morning ,
My recipe for Fat Friday is.... Cowboy Cookies!! I hope you enjoy.
First, a tribute to a hometown cowboy..........
Here he comes,
Here he comes,
There's the trumpets,
There's the drums,
Here he comes,
Hopalong Cassidy!

William L. Boyd was born in Cambridge, Ohio , June 5, 1895. In 1934 William Boyd became Hopalong Cassidy. He wore a black outift that contrasted perfectly with his white horse, Topper.

  1. The cookies look yummy! Another recipe for me to save and try :)

    Have a great weekend!


  2. By the way, that wasn't funny...commenting on how many days until Christmas like you did! LOL

  3. THANK YOU SO MUCH for visiting me and leaving me the information about the penny rugs---loved visiting you! I am adding you to my blog list, also.

  4. Those cookies sound delicious to me but unfortunetly my hubby doesn't like coconut. I'm actually getting ready to make a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. By the way, I have added you to my bloglist.


  5. Kim, I got the idea from the pickled pepper patch and the apples came from The Dollar Tree. Try them they are easy and so realistic!!!! Dawn
