These cookies go by many names, but we've always called them Minute Cookies on account of the fact that you need to boil them for at least one minute for them to turn out.
Ingredients 2 cups sugar 1/2 cup milk 1/2 cup cocoa pinch salt 1/2 cup butter 1 cup peanut butter 1 tsp. vanilla 3 cups quick oats (not instant or regular)
Combine sugar, milk, salt, butter and cocoa in a saucepan. Mix well. Bring mixture to a boil. Place a lid on the pan for 30 seconds, then remove and stir. Bring mixture to a full boil for 1 minute. Do not stir as its boiling.
Remove from heat and add peanut butter and vanilla and beat until smooth. Add in oatmeal and mix well, again.
Drop mixture by spoonfuls onto waxed paper or parchment paper. Allow to cool.
