I tripled this recipe and barely got 13 2" cookies. Who has time for such small batches of cookies? They were good but nothing any more special and then all the other recipes out there like this.

I just made these cookies. I boiled the milk mixture 1 minute then poured it over the quick oats and mixed well. I refrigerated for about 30 mins. Perfect.

Been making these for years. I don't use cocoa...but different recipe I created. Makes 2 dozen. Melt 1 stick butter Add 1/2 cup whole milk 1 cup white sugar 1 cup brown sugar Stirring constantly... Bring to bubbling boil on med high heat. Boil exactly 1 minute! Remove from heat. Stir in 1 T pure vanilla extract, 1/2-3/4 cup creamy peanut butter until well mixed. Quickly stir in 3 cups of raw (1-min) oats. Drop by spoonful onto buttered cookie sheet and gently pat down to look like a thick cookie. Let cool approx a hour.. Enjoy. ( If they r brittle u boiled too long, if to soft, u boiled not long enough--- exactly 1 min works)

My mom got this recipe in Workbasket a long time ago when TV here was first available..It was called TV Snacks. I am 90 so we have made them for years for me & my brother and my 9 children and 26 grandchildren & 10 great grandchildren.

My grandma used to make cookies that looked a lot like these. However, her recipe called for them to be cooked on the stovetop, was brought to a boil and then removed from the heat, peanut butter, vanilla and oats were then added, stirred together and dropped onto wax paper. I'm sure over the years they have been called many things but she simply called them No Bake Cookies!

These cookies are much better without the peanut butter. We call them fudge rounds. Made in the south taught to me by my grandma.
