Favorite Recipe

Favorite Recipe from my Recipe Box for Oatmeal Boiled Cookies. This recipe is courtesy of my Aunt Kim & my Mawmaw. I can not remember which of them I saw make it first. I know my Aunt made them more often it seems like, but I am not sure. These are really easy to make, but make sure the weather is sunny with no chance of storms outside or they will just not turn out.


  • 2 cups sugar

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1/4 # butter

  • 2 1/2 cups quick oats

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter

  • 2 tsp vanilla flavoring

Bring the sugar, milk, & butter to a complete rolling boil on top of stove. Cook at a rolling boil for 1 min 30 seconds (I usually use the timer on my microwave for exact time). Remove from heat and add oats, peanut butter, & vanilla. Mix well! Spoon mixture onto wax paper to allow cookies to cook and harden!!! Enjoy!!

Yum, Yum. I may have to make me some of those cookies. I can taste them now or maybe I should stick with smelling them.
Thanks for the memories. Aunt Kim
