Today, the girls and I were assigned the task of making cookies for my grandmother’s memorial service tomorrow. We opted to make her favorite cookie of all time… No Bake Cookies.
(Sorry for the blurriness of the photos, my oldest girl is still learning how to take shots properly.)
No Bake Cookies
2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
1 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 cups oatmeal
In a heavy saucepan bring to a boil, the sugar, cocoa, butter and milk. Let boil for 1 minute then add peanut butter, vanilla and oatmeal. On a sheet of waxed paper, drop mixture by the teaspoonfuls, until cooled and hardened.
See how easy that was?
Now… off to visit with some family from out-of-town, before all the madness tomorrow might bring.
If you had to pick a favorite cookie, which would it be?
