Cookie Week / Haystacks

Cookie Week - Day 2

  This cookie recipe comes from my mother-in-law, Ethel. She's an amazing baker & was kind enough to share this recipe with me. 

  These are super fast, no bake cookies. Perfect for days you just don't want to turn on the oven.

makes 15

3 cups oats
1 cup coconut (long, not fine)
6 tsp. cocoa
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup milk
2 cups brown sugar (loose, don't pack)
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix first 3 ingredients well.

Heat butter, brown sugar, & milk in a pot. Take it off the heat when it just starts to bubble. Or, if you're careful, you can do this step in the microwave. Be careful though, it can easily boil over. Stir often & watch closely.

Add vanilla & pour into the first mixture. Stir well. Drop by spoonful onto waxed or parchment paper. Freeze for 15 minutes. Remove & place into a container. Store in the refrigerator.

Join me tomorrow for Double Chocolate Cookies. Yay for cookie week!

Enjoy your day!
