Boiled Cookies

I always think about my grandmother when I make boiled cookies. We have made these cookies so many times that the original recipe card that Mommom gave us faded so that we could hardly read the recipe. We copied the recipe over but kept the old card. In our recipe book we have the new copy and the old recipe side by side.

They are so easy to make and yummy. They use some of the best ingredients out there. Chocolate, peanut butter, oats...I mean, what could get better than all those ingredients put together? ;)

Boiled Cookies

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 stick butter
Put in saucepan. Over medium heat, bring to boil. Boil for 1 1/2 minutes. Take off heat.

Add and mix:
  • 3 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Place tablespoonfuls on waxed paper lined cookie sheet and refrigerate until hardened.

I memorized the recipe after using that old card so many times. When I make boiled cookies, though, I think of Dad. :-)

Dad has certainly made (and eaten!) many, many boiled cookies!

What a great keepsake and the cookies sound wonderful. I have old recipe cards like those from when my children were small and we lived on the farm. I still look at them once in a while or check out a recipe I had forgotten.
