No-Bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

2 cups sugar

Dash of salt

1 stick butter (1/2 cup)

1/2 cup milk

1 cup peanut butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 cups uncooked oatmeal*

Waxed paper


In a large saucepan bring to a boil the sugar, salt, butter and milk. Boil mixture over medium heat for 1 full minute. Remove from heat immediately.


Add peanut butter and vanilla; stir well. Add oatmeal and stir until thoroughly incorporated. On a sheet of waxed paper, drop mixture by the teaspoonfuls. Drizzle with a mixture of cocoa, powdered sugar and water if desired. Cool several hours until set and firm.


*I prefer quick-cooking oats vs. old fashioned in this recipe but either will work!
