No Bake Cookies

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by lil_lady

These were one of my dad's favorite recipes. My grandma used to make them for her kids and dad made them for us. I use them to get a certain friend to come and visit by offering some fresh no-bakes. I love them, but they're absolutely impossible to eat without milk.

Mine won't sit up? You know get hard like a cookie? Why is that first time I cooked them for a minute this time I tried cooking them longer a 2 minutes but no matter how long they sit they won't harden. my mom's would harden like an actual cookie. Why aren't mine?

  1. Combine first four ingredients in saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook for about 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, vanilla and oatmeal.
  3. Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet covered with wax paper. Let cool.
  4. I usually do a double recipe and, more often than not, they don't last more than two days.
