Mama's Boiled Cookies
  • 2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa
  • 2 dashes salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (I prefer crunchy)
  1. Bring to a boil sugar, cocoa, salt, milk and butter. Cook to soft ball stage. Remove from heat. Add oats, peanut butter, and vanilla. Stir until the mixture just begins to hold shape.
  2. Drop by teaspoonful on waxed paper. Allow to cool.
Every time I visit my parents I make a special request for Boiled Cookies. I love to eat these when they are just cool enough to touch. YUM!
