No Bake Cookies

No bake cookies have a very funny story in our family.  One evening my cousin Laura called my mom.  "Aunt Kim I am making no bake cookies and the recipes doesn't tell me what tempature to put the over on or how long to cook them."  Laura is a true blonde if I have ever known one. 

1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
dash salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1 1/2 cups uncooked oatmeal

Microwave the butter for 15-20 seconds, until the butter is melted. Add cocao and blend until cocoa is dissolved into the butter.

Add sugar, milk and salt - blend well.  Microwave on high for 1 minute 10 seconds to bring to a full boil.  You want a full boil because it will continue to cook for awhile once it's removed from teh microwave.  Do not heat more than 1 minute 10 seconds or you could scorch the  mix.

Add vanilla, peanut butter, and oatmeal. Still well. Drop by tablespoon onto waved paper and allow to cool.
