From the Back Cover
I love Wild West Cookies, because I love any cookie baker who encourages the important traditions of baking cookies and sharing them with family and friends. And, more importantly sharing goodness from the heart.
--Debbi Fields, author of Debbi Fields Great American Desserts, founder Mrs. Fields Cookies
Tuda Crews is a talented baker. Her fabulous cookies taste as good as they look-and they look great!
--Beverly Cox author of Spirit of the West: Cooking from Ranch House and Range
What the great Western silversmiths and leather carvers have done for bits, spurs and saddles, Tuda Crews has now done for our collective sweet tooth. She has a hearty appetite for the West and its most colorful accouterments. Her great gift is passing her secrets along.
--Teresa Jordan, author of Riding the White Horse Home
Tuda Crews has created a taste for the West. Making the Wild Wild West Cowboy Cookie is as easy as pulling on your boots. This cookbook will bring shouts of delight from your family and friends. Enjoy!
--Jane Sullivan, First Lady of Wyoming, 1987-95
Better than coffee after a long day's ride, able to leap tall alliterations in a single bound, Cowboy Cookies are the answer to any declining appetite or fancy for the ephemeral arts. Tuda Crews has finally done it. The cowboy myth is so elusive, why not eat it? A great, fun work.
--Hal Cannon, founding director Western Folklife Center, Cowboy Poetry Gathering

(As I wrote in my review on her Wild, Wild, 1950's Cookies Book,) In all fairness to the author, this book was published in 1997, that
was 16 years ago! There have been a lot of cookie decorating Books published since then that I am comparing this book to. In 1997, this might have been a very desirable book and one of only a few cookie decorating books available then.
I made the Buffalo cookies using Tuda's copper Buffalo cutter. The Chocolate Buffalo Dough used ingredients that I had readily on hand: butter, shortening, flour, chocolate, eggs, vanilla, and sugar. Using Tuda's Tips, I was able to efficiently and easily roll out the dough. No struggling with crumbling dough here! The dough had a beautiful texture and was very easy to handle. However, the dough is very stiff and it mixes best in a large mixer (I used a 6-quart mixer).
The cookies baked best using parchment paper. The parchment paper really made a difference in holding the shape of the cookies. The cookies had a light and almost chewy-texture, depending on how thickly you roll them out. They were not brittle.
After baking, I cooled and iced them just like Tuda, even accenting the Buffalo coats with chocolate sprinkles (or jimmies). The cookies were happily received and applauded. These Chocolate Buffalo cookies are original, unique, and remarkable. You'll enjoy making them as much as eating them!
This cookbook also includes recipes for Cowboy Sugar Cookies, Adobe Frosting, and Sugar Baby Frosting. Tuda thoughtfully includes Tips for Rolling-Out, Cutting-Out, Baking, and Decorating the cookies. The Decorating techniques are clear and easy to follow. Tuda even tells you how to pack these cookies for shipping them long distances!
You will enjoy this cookbook from cover to cover. It makes for lovely afternoons with your family, or even as a baking adventure for cookie lovers. Go ahead, bake a herd of Buffao and start a stampede to your kitchen!
