Cookies from Food Storage Link Party-Cowboy Cookies

Today I going to have a link party.  My first one so I hope it goes well.  If you are new to link parties, here's how it works: if you have a post on your blog that relates to the party, you fill out the section below and a photo from your blog with a link to your blog will appear.  It is a fun way for everyone to share recipes.  If you don't have a blog and just want to check out all of the recipes it is a good way to see what is out there.  Today's link party is Cookies from Food Storage 

If you are new to food storage one of the easiest ways to start using it is to make cookies. One of my family's favorite recipes is Cowboy Cookies. In fact when we were first dating my now husband made these for me to take on a family vacation.  My family loved them and was sure we would get married (we did) all  becuase of a cookie.

Yes I do think you should have chocolate chips in your food storage.  My husband says butterscotch chip are also a must have.
