December 13

Today Alex and I made Fudgy Oatmeal Cookies. There are a lot of variations of this recipe out there, but this is the first time I have made the version with peanut butter. Jimmy and I used to make a version of these quite often.


Fudgy Oatmeal Cookies

2 C sugar
1/2 C milk
1/4 lb butter (one stick)
3 T cocoa
1/4 t salt
1 t vanilla
1/2 C peanut butter
3 C quick cooking oats

Combine sugar, milk, butter, & cocoa in heavy pan. Bring to boil for 1 minute, timing accurately. Add salt & vanilla. Blend in peanut butter & oats. Mix well. Drop by teaspoons on wax paper. Will become firm in 15 minutes. Yield 4 dozen.

Please consider sending Jimmy a Christmas card.
