No bake peanut butter cookies

Please tell me these cookies were a staple when you were growing up? We actually usually ate the ones with cocoa in them but these bring back memories, man!

These sugar bombs come together in mere minutes and make a great after school snack for kids. Or after dinner treat for an adult with a sweet tooth. They store great in the freezer and even taste better(?) straight out of the freezer.

No bake peanut butter cookies, adapted from Allrecipes.com, makes 4-5 dozen

  • 2 1/2 cups sugar 
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 5 cups quick-cooking oats

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, butter and milk. Bring to a rapid boil and boil for a full 90 seconds. 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 teaspoon or tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper. Let cool until set.

You will want to scoop these cookies out right away. They will set up as they cool.

If you want them more “runny” just subtract a half cup of oats. Enjoy!
