No Bake Cookies

+ enlarge

This is the easiest cookie recipe to make. Not only are they delicious and bad for the hips but … the reason I like them is one of the most simple. When all the other cookies become hard in the cookie jar, I make up a batch of these and put them in and they make all the cookies soft again. It’s not an old recipe, although it comes from a very old handwritten cookbook.

Unbaked Cookies

Bring to a boil:
2 cups sugar
6 Tablespoons cocoa
1/2-cup milk
1/4-pound butter

3 cups oatmeal
1/2-cup peanut butter
1-cup coconut

Drop from spoon and cool. No baking.

You can tell it’s old since everything is spelled out and she doesn’t tell you what to drop it into.
