6 Weeks of Cookies Challenge: Boiled Cookies

I am joining Allison over at Go Dansker Mom for a 6 week challenge of cookie making.Just like Allison, I have a habit of waiting till a week before Christmas to bake cookies and then we end up with way too many to eat or even give away. So I asked Allison if I could jump on board and join her.

With Thanksgiving this week I was already doing a lot of cooking and baking. So I needed some simple, easy, quick cookies I had made before. I opted for one of my favorite recipes I inherited from my grandmother: Boiled Cookies.  To the right is a picture of the original recipe written on an index card in my grandmother's handwriting with my aunt's name on it. You can see by the stains that it's been used a few times ;)

2 Cups Sugar
1 Stick Margarine (tub butter will not work!)
1/2 Cup Milk
4 T. Cocoa
2 1/2 Cups Quick-cook oatmeal (Not instant)
2 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 Cup Peanut butter
1. Put Sugar, Margarine, Milk, and Cocoa in a large sauce pan and bring to a boil.

2. Boil for 1 1/2 min to 2 min.

3. Remove from heat. Add Oatmeal, Vanilla, and Peanut butter. Stir well.

4. Drop by the spoonful onto wax paper.

5. Leave to cool and harden. Can take up to an hour depending on size of cookies.

6. Remove from wax paper and enjoy!

This recipe is a childhood favorite of mine and I now share with my kids.  Bubee actually helped me make this batch. The cookies end up being like a mix between oatmeal cookies and fudge. If you're going to store or transport these make sure to put a piece of wax paper between each layer or they will stick to each other.

Like this idea? Pin it!!
