No Bake Cookies
These are the best cookies in the world. They are so easy to make and they are sooooooooo good!

1 stick of butter
1/2 cup of cocoa
2 cups of sugar
1/2 cup of milk
Put all of this in a pan and heat until it bubbles a little bit around the sides. Remove from heat and add:
3 cups of quick oatmeal
1/2 of peanut butter
1 running over teaspoon of vanilla
Stir it up and drop globs of it onto waxed paper and let it cool (cooling is, of course, optional)
They normally don’t even make it to the cooling stage. They are delicious!

    • Oh we LOVE these cookies. They are one of the few things I can never get right though. My dear sweet husband (an engineer) has perfected the process and though he doesn't cook anything else, he turns these out perfectly. We always make a double batch. I will also add that we transitioned to natural peanut butter (no hydrogenated oil) and tried to swap to old fashioned oats. Clay was never happy with the texture so I went back to buying quick oats just for these cookies.
      Our recipe must not be exactly the same though because you have to cook ours to the soft ball stage. Maybe I should try yours and see if I can get them right? :)

    • just the butter, cocoa, sugar and milk to a rolling boil. The rest you just add to that. The heat from the boil melts the pb and cooks the oats. I wish I had some now. This recipe makes about 24 cookies. I will eat at least 12 if somebody don’t hide them.

    • Curiosity got the best of me. :) The only difference is the cocoa. My recipe calls for 4 Tbls. Clay boils for 8 minutes. It works for him, but not for me. LOL Maybe I’ll bump up the cocoa even though that doesn’t seem to be much difference (I think 4 T = 1/3 c.) I’ll have to try while hubby is in Colorado. It is a Sunday favorite at our house.

    • I was just talking about these cookies the other night with my step-daughter, who’d never heard of them.

      My mother used to make them every year at Christmas, and we ate them by the truckload. Today my dentist thanks her. LOL!

    • I have no idea why I have such a hard time with them. I used to cater and have cooked cream filled puff pastries, Black Forest Tortes and Petit Fours by the truckload. Yes, me the health nut... the Lean for Lifer, I have contributed to many a sweet tooth. :) But hey, I could adopt the same attitude of a doctor who once told me (when I was talking to her about incorporating wellness into her practice) “if all my patients were healthy, I wouldn’t have a job.”
      I sell ‘em the petit fours until they are unhappy with their weight gain, and then introduce them to Osolean.... sounds like a plan.  LOL

    • I would never grow tired of petit fours. There is a bakery here that makes the best I’ve ever had, I try to stay as far away from there as possible!

    • My ‘healthy’ version uses  1 1/2 lbs of butter and almost 5 lbs of powdered sugar for 48 petit fours. We call them sugar bombs! They used to be one of my favorite desserts, but after the pain in the butt of making them over and over, (and eating all the scraps LOL) I am over them. :)
