These cookies take me back to being a little girl. I remember them like I remember cheese sandwiches on white bread with Miracle Whip and iceberg lettuce or applesauce with red hots stirred into it.
Now we make them often when we have a need for chocolate that needs to be met quickly.
What you’ll need:
1/2 cup butter
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup milk
a bit of salt (the recipe says 1 tsp, but i just shake some in)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup peanut butter (I never measure this either, just add a big glob)
3 cups quick cook oats
Boil all the ingredients except the oats for three minutes. Add in the oatmeal and drop by teaspoons full onto wax paper. It takes them a little while to set up. I like them while they’re still glossy and a bit soft, but they are good the next day too.
