This post is really about Cowboy cookies but my mind works in mysterious ways and the cookies reminded me of one of my favorite movies from when my kids were little, The Rescuers Down Under. I loved every character from Ms. Bianca teetering on the edge of snootville but in a lovable sort of way to the big bad monitor lizard Joanna and her egg snatching hi-jinks.
One of my very favorite scenes was when Frank the little frilled lizard gets stuck riding on Joanna's back cowboy style. You can check out the (grainy) classic Disney hilarity here. And find the recipe for these fantastic cookies here. Both the cookies and the movie are a must, trust me on this one.
