My daughter, a first time mom has discovered that she likes to cook with my grandson Jack.(He is two and he loves to help) I had this recipe in my own cookbook from way back when.
Its quick,Its easy, the Kids can help, but best of all its cheap, it taste good. You probably have all the ingredients on hand in your cupboard.
We call them Boiling Cookies:
2 cups sugar
1/2 cups butter
3 Tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup milk
3 cup oatmeal.
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Have your wax paper spread and ready for the cookies. An adult can help you with the boiling part.
Boil together sugar, butter, cocoa and milk for approx 2 1/2 minutes stirring constantly.
Remove from heat
and add vanilla and oatmeal.
Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper.
Put into fridge to harden.
Note to Jack's mom if you two make these take a picture and send it to me.
