Joyeux Kitchen: Laura's No Bake Cookies

Everyone has their own version of this classic recipe, but this one from Doug's mama is our family's favorite.  So easy and fast to whip up!  The only problem is how quickly they disappear. 
You'll need:

  • 1 stick of butter

  • 3 tbsp cocoa

  • 2 cups sugar

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 3 cups oats
 Combine the butter, cocoa, sugar and milk in a pot on the stove and bring to a boil for one minute.  Remove from heat.  Add peanut butter, vanilla, and oatmeal; stir quickly and drop by spoonful onto wax paper.  This sets up fast so don't dawdle.  Enjoy!  [Note: I like to sub a cup of chopped pecans for a cup of the oats, it makes for a crunchier cookie with a nice flavor.]
