No Bake Cookies.
Tasty no-bake Cookies made with oats, peanut butter and cocoa. Start timing when mixture reaches a full rolling boil; this is the trick to successful cookies. If you boil too long the cookies will be dry and crumbly. If you don't boil long enough, the cookies won't form properly.
1 ¾ cups white sugar
½ cup milk
½ cup butter--do not use margarine.
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
½ cup crunchy peanut butter--use all-natural for best results.
3 cups quick-cooking oats. For more texture, use old-fashion oats.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa. Bring to a boil, and cook for 1 1/2 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in peanut butter, oats, and vanilla. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper. Let cool until hardened. Taste Best if you store cookies in an air-tight container and keep in refrigerator. Yields about 3 dozen cookies.
