No Bake Cookies

This photo is compliments of the internet!

I am sharing with you a recipe that was very popular in the late 1980's, something that was one of my very favorites.  I was 6 years old the first time I remember my mom making them in our apartment kitchen.  I kept going for more and I vaguely recall my mother stopping me each time saying she did not want me to get sick!  Well, my recipe went missing for a few years and I couldn't locate it online at the time.   I finally found it last winter and after making them, again I kept wanting to return for more cookies.

Please make them for all of your Christmas guests.  They will love.

What You Need:

  • 2c Sugar
  • 1/4c Cocoa
  • 1/2c Milk
  • 1/4c Margarine
  • 1t Vanilla
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1/2c Peanut Butter
  • 3c Quick Oatmeal


Mix sugar, cocoa, milk and margarine in pan on stove.  Cook over medium heat until it boils.  Remove from heat for one minute.  Add vanilla, salt, peanut butter and oatmeal.  Drop by teaspoonfuls on waxed paper.  Let Cool.

Okay I'll be honest...I took pictures but I didn't post them because they don't do justice.  Just make the cookies and try them for yourself.
