No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookies
I have such wonderful memories of my Mom and Grandma making these no bake cookies from time to time while I was a kid. Once in a while cocoa powder was added to the mix as well. The next time you do not want to use your oven…try these stove top goodies.
- 3 cups white sugar
- 3/4 cup butter
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
- 4 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
- In a saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, butter and milk. Bring to a rapid boil and boil for one full minute. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and peanut butter. Mix in the oats, stirring until the mixture begins to cool. Transfer to a large bowl if it does not fit into the pan well. Drop batter by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper. Let cool until set.
