In 1883 our founder B. Angus Hyde, set out to find his fame and fortune in the west. Being a baker by trade, he sought to develop a recipe for a cookie that cowboys and other country folk could enjoy. Since uniformity was big in those days, he needed one that would come out to look, smell and taste the same each time. Well, after going through many piles of potential ingredients, he finally stumbled into the combination we know today as “cow chips”. The uniqueness of what he had found stuck with him and soon they could be seen by the dozens around the homes of his neighboring friends and relatives. Now over a hundred years later, after carefully retracing his footsteps we bring you his famous recipe of success, virtually unchanged from the day he ran across it.
