No Nonsense No Bake Cookies


Today, my friends, is an exciting day; I am not wearing a jacket, cardigan, tights, or even those pesky socks.  Yep, it is warm out.  A for real spring (summery) day.  My widget is clocking the temp at 83 degrees.  Despite the warmness I was still antsy to bake something, but I didn't want to be married to the kitchen, what if an impromptu BBQ started, or Max wanted a rematch in croquet, or Lisa invited me to her porch for a glass of wine?  I need to be available yet feed my itch.  So there was little question on what I needed to bake, or should I say not bake.  Yep, pretty much my favorite cookie, No Bake Cookies.  These babies took me all of 20 minutes, and now I've got a snack to bring to any of the said afternoon activities.  Let me share this Oh So Easy recipe with you. 

No Bake Cookies
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter
5 tablespoons cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups oatmeal

Boil butter, sugar, and milk for 1 minute. It is important to let this boil for exactly one minute.  Otherwise the consistency of the cookie will be off. 


Remove from heat and add peanut butter, cocoa, vanilla and oatmeal.

Mix thoroughly and drop on waxed paper.  Let cool then eat.  Or eat a bite or two of the warm oatmeally goodness!  I certainly can't resist.

10 minutes later. . .

Enjoy!
