My elementary school friend Casey and I would make these, and half of them would never make their debut into cookie form. We would make a batch, eat half from the pan, and then go swimming in her pool all afternoon. Then eat the rest after. Seriously. The good old days of thinking nothing of eating a whole batch of cookies is long gone, but every time I come across this recipe, I think of her and the great times we had rollerblading, playing in her creek, and swimming. We were active kids and had great adventures.
- 1 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 milk
- 1/3 cup cocoa
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/3 cup peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 cup quick oats
Combine sugar, milk, cocoa and butter into saucepan and bring to a boil..
Remove from heat. Cool 1 minute. Then stir in remaining ingredients.
Drop on wax or parchment paper with a teaspoon or tablespoon.
Let set and cool until they peel off the wax paper easily. This recipe makes about 25-30 cookies. I’ll admit it: I ate three before they were cool. Thanks Casey for the memories.
