An easy but good cookie to make on a hot day when you don't want to turn on oven. So easy that even the kids can help.
INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 cups white sugar
- 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 3 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Wipe 1" wide band of butter around the rim of a 3 quart pan to prevent boil-over.
Combine milk, sugar, cocoa, butter and peanut butter.
Stir and bring to boil over medium heat. Let boil for 1 1/2 minutes, do not stir.
Remove from heat. Stir in oats and vanilla. Stir until oats evenly distributed.
Drop by teaspoon onto waxed paper. Cool. Makes 4 to 5 dozen.
