Wyoming - "Cutie" Pies

Wyoming is the 10th most extensive state in the U.S but is the second least densely populated.  30 million acres of the vast state are farms and the number one agricultural product produced are cows and calves.  You may be wondering where this is heading... well, with all that cattle, a popular cookie in Wyoming is called the Cow Pie.  I just couldn't bring myself to call my last state sweet a Cow Pie, so I'm going to call them Cutie Pies instead.  

This chocolate / peanut butter / oatmeal no-bake cookie has many other names, but no matter what you call it, it is delicious and super fast to make! 

4 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 cup milk
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 cups quick cooking oats 


  • melt first 4 ingredients in large pan and boil for 1 minute
  • remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, vanilla and the quick cooking oats
  • immediately drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper or aluminum foil 
  • enjoy once cool

I was happy to rediscover this cookie (despite the name) and hope you will give it a try if you haven't had one before!  



  1. Awesome! I think your plan is really interesting, I'll follow your blog!

    Last year I was an exchange student in Alaska and loved it because through my experience I also got the chance to discover American cuisine, whose best part I think are desserts! These look delicious! I'll copy the recipe ;)

    1. Thanks so much Michela! I've already blogged through the 50 states but you can "visit" each state by looking back through all of the posts. Be sure to check out my post on Alaska too and let me know if you had any experience with Akutaq while you were there. : ) Thanks so much!
