Lots of "N" words were sifting thru my head on my day off from the Blogging from A-Z Challenge. Naughty, nice, nifty, nothing, nachos, nincompoop, nails, nature, nest, nursery were some of those words.
Gee......Naughty was FIRST? Weird!
But I finally settled upon NO Bake Cookies.
I love these cookies! They are my quick go-to recipe when I need to take a little something along to a function. I usually always have the ingredients on hand, they are super easy, take under 30 minutes to make and I don't have to turn on the oven to make them.....a big plus since I live in Phoenix and it is super hot in the summer.
|Mix 4 simple ingredients.....Milk, sugar, butter and Cocoa powder|
I came across the recipe that I use when I was 15 years old and living in San Diego. I don't remember where I got the recipe, but I do remember that our real estate agent had some of my cookies and asked to publish the recipe in his newsletter to his clients.
|I usually mix my sugar and cocoa powder together to |
break up any lumps that may be in the cocoa
|Stir and boil for 1 minute|
|Add the next 3 ingredients, mix and plop on some wax paper to set up|
There are a lot of recipes out there for No Bake cookies.
Here is my "tweaked over the years" recipe:
Tammy's No Bake Cookies
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sugar
2 heaping tablespoons of cocoa powder
Melt butter in a large saucepan and add in remaining ingredients.
Stir and boil for 1 minute.
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons vanilla
3 cups quick oats
Scoop this mixture out by the spoonful and drop onto wax paper
Then try and wait until they harden before you eat them!
Go ahead.........try to wait!
|Notice the empty spot?|
I couldn't wait.
