Great Grandma's No-Bake Cookies

My grandmother used to make these cookies when I was growing up, and to this day, they are a favorite comfort food for my family and friends!

Great Grandma's No-Bake Cookies
Makes 30-35 cookies

Lay out newspaper on your table and cover with wax paper.

In a large mixing bowl:
3 cups quick oats
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla

In a saucepan:
1 stick margarine
2 cups sugar
3 tbsp cocoa
1/2 cup milk

Stirring ingredients, bring saucepan to a boil.  Boil for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.  (A gentle, rolling boil works best; if you boil too little or too long, the cookies will not set up.)  Remove from heat and pour over ingredients in large mixing bowl.  Stir until well-mixed.  Drop by spoonful onto the wax paper.  Cookies will take 30-60 minutes to set up.

If they don't set up well, cut the wax paper into strips that will fit in a rectangular container and refrigerate. Even if they don't set up well, they're good gooey!



I love these cookies and congratulations on your blog!
