"These cookies are known through town. They take a while to make but are well worth it. Be sure to use instant oats. I have tried updating the recipe numerous times to state that, but it defaults to "Quicker Quaker Oats". It helps to stir them in a bit at a time so they cook and you can gauge the dryness of the mixture."

"One of my most requested cookie recipes.I make these alot in the summer when its too hot to bake and the kids are yelling for cookies."
"Everyone I know loves these cookies! The only change I make is I use one square of Baker's Chocolate in place of coccoa. These are especially great in the summer because they don't create any extra heat, but watch out or you might add to your waistline...I can never have just one!"
"This is a childhood favorite. Everybody loves them and it takes no time to whip them up."
"I made this so many times growing up that I no longer need to look at the recipe, because I have it memorized! Who can wait for them to cool!!! Our favorite time to eat them is while they are warm. We add the butter with the peanut butter and vanilla and only cook to a soft ball. Also, I like to mix the cocoa and sugar together before adding the milk... fewer lumps to break up. :) "
"This is wonderful and works like a charm! Everyone enjoyed these at my place. Thanks for a master blaster!"
"I used to make cookies using this recipe when I was just a little girl!!! I was so excited to see it here! Since then I have made it twice... took them to a family function and everyone asked for the recipe. Yum Yum."
"Yum! A blast from the past, the classic no bake cookie. I boil only 40 seconds. Thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"I just made these for my son-in-law for Christmas per his request. They were not only easy but they taste great! (I had to taste one to make sure they came out, before I give them to him). Thanks for posting!"
"Delicious! Exactly like grandmas old recipe. Thanks a bunch! Quick and Easy and always a crowd pleaser."
"These are great. my mom's recipe calls for 1/2 cup cocoa. I make these every Christmas."
"my husband requested no bake cookies, i had never even heard of them. i set off to find a recipe and found this one, i love chocolate and peanut butter together, so i desided to give this a try since i already had all the ingredients on hand. they were really good, and i couldn't believe how easy and fast this all came together! thanks!"
"LOVE this cookie! Just featured a no-bake cookie stuffed cupcake as well as a mini cupcake topped with no-bake cookie dough frosting on my baking blog. YUM! http://cuppycakebakes.blogspot.com"
"AMAZING. Love these!"
"Like everybody else, I was looking for a taste of something my Momma used to make me as a child. This recipe did the trick, and is very forgiving in my opinion, of over boiling and late mixing! I almost forgot to add the peanut butter and vanilla right away after pulling from the stove, yet they still turned out moist and delicious. This recipe is wonderful, thank you for posting it! This is a keeper."
"The best no-bake cookie recipe I've found. They set up perfectly, though I made a few changes. I halved the recipe, used rolled oats and Dutch-processed cocoa. I also added about 1/4 cup of coconut when I added the oats, cause that's the way I like it. Beware: I can see how some may not like the texture of rolled oats in this recipe. I love it, but then again, I also like to eat oats straight out of the bag!"
"Very good cookies!!!!I made half batch of these cookies and they turned out awesome!Thanks Sara"
"I made these cookies exactly as directed and they turned out awesome! They were made for some out of state company who raved over them. Thanks!"
"these cookies are awesome!"
