Foodie Friday: No Bake Cookies

Ever had one of those days when you just want to bake a tasty treat but you just can't bring yourself to turn on the oven and add to the already warm temperature in the house? Have no fear, Foodie Friday is here!! This recipe is taken form Brown Eyed Baker's website. (You should really heck out some of the other delicious recipes on her site. They are equally delicious.)

-1/2 c butter
-2 c sugar
-1/2 c milk
-4 T cocoa powder
-1/2 c peanut butter
-2 t vanilla extract
-3 c quick cooking oats

  1. Add the first four ingredients (through the cocoa powder) to a 4-quart saucepan.
  2. Bring to a rolling boil and let boil for 1 minute.
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Stir in the peanut butter and vanilla until smooth, then stir in the oats.
  5. Drop by heaping tablespoons onto wax paper-lined baking sheets.
  6. Let cool until set.
Just beware. When you get one out for yourself, you may attract a little friend who may want to share with you.

My granny used to make everyone's favorite dessert at Christmas (yes, everyone's!) There were a lot of desserts, but this one was mine. : )
