One word: EASY! One more word: YUM! These classic cookies are a hit wherever I take them, which is wherever we have to go when I don’t have the time or the ingredients to make anything else!
No Bake Cookies
- 1/2 c. butter
- 1/2 c. milk
- 2 c. sugar
- 3 c. oatmeal (I use old fashioned)
- 5 Tbsp. cocoa
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 3/4 c. peanut butter (I like chunky)
Mix butter, sugar, cocoa, and milk in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Boil for one minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add vanilla, peanut butter, and oatmeal. Mix well. Spoon onto wax paper. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
*I like to use my cookie scoop for a more uniform shape. I squash them a little after scooping.
*If you’re in a hurry, place the wax paper on a cookie sheet pan. After scooping, let the cookies set up in the fridge.
