I was in the mood for something with oatmeal in it and not really in the mood to watch batches of cookies in the oven, worrying about remembering them so they do not overbake. So, I pulled out my mom’s old recipe for No Bake Cookies today and in a few minutes I will whip up a batch.
2 cups sugar
2 squares unsweetened chocolate or 5 Tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 1/2 cups oats
Bring to a boil sugar, cocoa, and butter. Add the vanilla. Pour mixture over oats, mix well. Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet and chill.
Some recipes use chocolate chips in place of the other chocolate. This assures that they will set firmly.
