No Bake Oatmeal Cookie Recipe makes old fashioned stove-top cookies with oatmeal, peanut butter, cocoa and pecans in less than 5 minutes.
This recipe has been in our family many
years. Originally, we called these Stove Top Cookies. I don't remember that first recipe containing nuts.
They were so easy to make that my 10
year old daughter made them often and sold them to earn money. She added
nuts to the recipe and we have made them that way ever since.
In a large saucepan add sugar, butter, milk, cocoa, and vanilla. Bring to a boil on low heat and boil one minute. Start counting when you see the first bubble.
Turn off heat and quickly stir in peanut butter, oatmeal, and
pecans, mixing thoroughly. Drop by tablespoonful onto cookie sheet lined
with aluminum foil. Cool.
Chill in refrigerator several hours or overnight to set up firmly before serving.
