grandma's cookbook - No-Bake Cookies

Did you know 86% of grandmas bake cookies? Are you part of the 86%? If so, what are your grandchildren's favorite cookie?

My grandsons love a simple butter-sugar cookie . . . and I make when the boys are here . . . they also love sampling the cookie dough!

But, with summer and warmer weather arriving, my cookie baking tends to, "take a break". So, I'm very interested in discovering no-bake cookie recipes. I do have one go-to no-bake recipe . . . which I'm sharing with you today . . . 

Ingredients -
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 stick of butter
Bring these three ingredients to a boil - stirring from time-to-time, then let boil for one minute without stirring.
  • 3 cups oats - I like the "old fashioned"
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips & dark chocolate chips (I often mix the two for my 1 cup, but you are welcome to use just one or the other.)
Add pb and chocolate chips - stir so them melt and blend in. Add oats. Stir. Drop by the spoonfull onto wax-paper lined pan or plates. Place in freezer to "set".


I tend to keep these cookies in the freezer so the chocolate doesn't get "melty" in warm weather - and they are better frozen!

So, what no-bake recipes do you use?
