SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE!

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.

Ingredients

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

Directions:

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.
