Peanut Butter Drop Cookies

It was said of a certain Volunteer Regiment during the War Between The States that "lack of sweets" was one of the the leading causes of desertion during boot camp.  Never let that be said of this camp.

This recipe is fast, easy and delicious and all the ingredients are usually common in the kitchen pantry.

Oatmeal is a perfect food and Peanut Butter is great source of protein.

Peanut Butter Drop Cookies

2 c. Sugar
1/2 c. Milk
1 Stick Butter
1/3 c. Cocoa (opt.)
1/2 c. Peanut Butter
3 c. Oatmeal
1 t. Vanilla

Heat sugar, milk, butter and cocoa on medium-high heat until boiling.  Boil 1 minute.  Remove from heat. Add peanut butter & vanilla. Stir in oatmeal and drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper and let cool.  Yields 24. ( I like to use a wooden spoon for this recipe.)

This recipe is also known as Mud Pie or No-Bake Cookies. Our Moms made a lot of these type cookies back in the 70's when we were growing up.  Good for a fund-raiser type cookie also.


God bless,
