Unbaked cookies. These cookies have tons of names, e.g. Hay Stacks, Turtles, Unbaked Cookies, etc. They have always looked like cow poop to me, but they are addicting. Betcha can't eat just one!


  1. Melt butter in large sauce pan, add milk, sugar and cocoa powder. Bring to medium boil and boil for 1 minute. Any longer and the sauce will harden too much when cookies set. Any shorter and the cookies may not harden enough.
  2. Remove from heat and add rolled oats and coconut. (I usually premix the coconut and oats). Mix well with wooden spoon and drop onto parchment or wax paper. You decide on the size of cookies you want. These cookies take about a 1/2 day to a day to set depending on the size.

This recipe was posted on my birthday!! Not that that had anything to do with my making this dish. I just noticed it today. I made this for a family get together at my brother's house. He lives on a farm, yes, with cows. I thought that the cow poop was going to be more acceptable here. Not in the city. All the kids. (this includes the big kids) loved these cookies. Even when they knew that they could not taste the magic. See the picture. Thanks, mspebblesfinstone for posting.
