No-Bake Cookies

I invented this recipe right around the time Al Gore invented the internet.


Oh, come on.  That was funny.

This is the way my mom made 'em.

So that's how I do it.

And if you haven't done it in a while, you should soon.

Make these cookies.

Put a few yummy things in a pan.  Boil for a minute.

Remove from heat.

Add these other yummy ingredients.

Stir.  Sorry for the blur.

Scoop on wax paper.

Try to let them set before you devour.

No-Bake Cookies

1 stick butter
3 T cocoa powder
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups quick-cooking oats
3 T creamy peanut butter

Place the butter, cocoa, sugar and milk into a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.  As soon as it begins a slow boil, set a timer for one minute.  At the end of a minute, remove from heat and stir in the remaining ingredients.  Use a medium ice cream scoop to drop in mounds on wax paper.  Cool to room temperature and serve.
