Famous No-Bake Cookies

So this is my recipe for no-bake cookies--LOL.  It's actually out of a church cookbook from 20 years ago, or longer.  Sadly, I am not one of those organized recipe people, and most of my recipes look something like this.  As you can see, there are really no directions to the recipe. 

Heat first 4 ingredients on stove, bringing to boil.  Let rapid boil 1 minute (no shorter, no longer).

Here's where the recipe gets a little fuzzy.....I just scoop out a spoonful of creamy and spoonful of crunchy peanut butter and throw it in.  Its probably more than a 1/2 cup total, but who really knows.  The teaspoon vanilla is usually overflowing.  The oats (only use Quaker--in desperation I was stuck buying Great Value oats one time---so not the same!)  just pour in the pan until it reaches the consistency you desire.

Scoop onto wax paper and let air dry.  If I only had a dollar for every time I've made a batch....hmmm...

  1. I know what you mean about recipes being on scraps of paper. I had a newspaper recipe for rice pudding that sounded divine. I made it one time while we were living in C'ville. It was the best rice pudding I had ever had. I put the recipe in a safe place and it's still safe because I have never been able to find it. To make matters worse, I've never been able to find a rice pudding recipe since then that even came close. Arggh! It taught me a lesson to try to keep all my recipes together. Notice I used the word try. I still struggle with it but I have hope that I'll get it together someday.
