Giddy Up! [Cowgirl Cookies]

SONY DSCI’ve got a bit of a cookie crush on Moo Milk, a charming milk and cookie bar in Toronto that opened last August. After trying one of their ice cream sandwiches I was hooked (marshmallow ice cream with toffee bit cookies, can you blame me?!).   I’m not even a huge milk drinker, but their delicious flavours have turned me into a bit of a convert, and there really isn’t anything better to go with their show-stopping cookies (which are pretty much  perfect;  a little crispy around the outside, with a chewy center…I think I may have tried almost every flavour they had the last time I was in town).  mooThough it’s tough to pick a favourite Moo cookie, their Cowgirl cookie might just be it.  My love of sweet and salty combinations had me going back for seconds…and bringing some back for my family in Ottawa.
moosandwichI’m not sure why these are called Cowgirl cookies, but I like it.  It’s feisty.  They are great for Cowboys as well, of course.  This recipe isn’t for Moo Milk’s cookie, but rather my attempt at recreating them in my kitchen in Huelva…Moo’s has (I’m pretty sure) some mini choco chips, toffee bits, pretzels, and espresso grounds.  Mine include chocolate chunks, pretzels, oats, espresso grounds, and I threw in some shredded coconut the second time I made them.  So, not quite “the” Moo Milk Cowgirl cookie, but pretty darn delicious all the same! cowgirl
