No Bake Cookies

2 c. sugar
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. butter
3 1/2 Tbl. cocoa
1/2 c. peanut butter
3 c. quick oatmeal
1 Tbl. vanilla
1/2 c. chopped nuts (I usually leave these out)

  1. Fantastic! Can you believe I've been a homemaker for over 12 years and I had yet to find a good no bake cookie recipe? Thanks for posting this.

  2. are too cute! A lot of these I'm posting so that I can get rid of all the scraps hanging around my recipe files. I also told Katie about it, so I'm putting up a bunch of basic stuff that she might use, too. :)

  3. Hey, good idea. I should tell Kimmy to check out this site. My new sister in law might think it is fun too.
