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
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.
