Unbaked cookies for your cookie jar

Following recipe was posted somewhere on Facebook (not sure where now). It is lovely and very addictive sweet, so be aware. :-)

I have put a new shape to the cookies, so they will look nice with eid sweets - rolling them into a ball.
Spoon normally your cookie as you would with any other cookie. Let it cool a bit and then simply roll. For festive occasion you can put them into nice paper baskets.

Now here is the recipe:

2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa
1 stick of real butter  (don't substitute)
1/2 cup milk
1 cup peanut butter, crunchy or smooth
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 cups oatmeal
Waxed paper

In a heavy saucepan bring to a boil the sugar, cocoa, butter and milk. Let it  boil for 1 minute then add peanut butter, vanilla and oatmeal. On a sheet of waxed paper, drop mixture by the teaspoonfuls, leave until cooled and hardened, which will take some time.

"Waffle" sandwich

What's for dinner? How about nice warm sandwich? You don't need panini press as long as you have waffle iron.

Now, fill up your sandwich with something yummy.
Tuna, cheese, salami, cooked vegetables, mix of beef, potatoes and veggies... what ever you like.

Bake in for about 3 minutes or so. Depending how crunchy you want your sandwich to be.
And voila - you have nice and quick dinner.

Waffle Iron tip:
If you don't want the teflon peeling off after some time, just don't even use oil or butter. I don't use any of them, waffles never stick and iron looks like I bought it today.
