First off - Today I'm blogging at Seduced by History on doing Historical Research. If you leave a comment on your secret for doing research, you could win one of two books I'm giving away.
I don't know what it's like where you live, but here in south Texas, it's HOT! You wake up to 85 degrees and it only gets hotter as the day goes by. Not the time to be baking cookies in the oven. So, here's a no-bake cookie recipe.
NO BAKE CHOCOLATE-PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES
2 cups sugar
1/2 stick butter (1/4 cup)
1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons cocoa
3 heaping tablespoons peanut butter
2 cups oatmeal
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
In a heavy saucepan, mix sugar, cocoa, butter and milk. Heat to a boil, then cook for 1 minute. Remove from stove. Add peanut butter, oatmeal and vanilla. Stir well. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto waxed paper. Let cool and enjoy.
