This is a chewy, peanut butter-rich cookie made with oats. Both kids and adults will like this.
Again, this is a stovetop recipe. From ingredients to cookies on the sheet took us about ten minutes.
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cups peanut butter
3 cups quick rolled oats
- Add the brown sugar, evaporated milk, and butter to a heavy saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring continually, until the mixture comes to boil. Cook for one minute longer.
- Remove from heat, stir in peanut butter, quick oats, and vanilla. Stir until the mixture begins to cool.
- Drop the cookies by the spoonful onto a nonstick baking sheet or waxed paper. Cool completely in the refrigerator.
