Tasty Tuesday - No Bake Cookies
Happy first day of summer! It's a hot and humid one here. I've been yearning to bake something for a few days, but just can't bring myself to turn the oven on anytime it's above 80 degrees! This recipe is great for days today because it doesn't require any baking. It comes from my mom, and I remember her making it often when I was a kid...probably on days just like today!
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup coconut
In a large saucepan, melt margarine. Add milk, vanilla and sugar. Boil for 5 minutes. Add rolled oats, coconut and cocoa. Cook for 2 more minutes. Immediately drop by tablespoonfuls onto wax-paper lined baking sheets. Freeze until hardened, around 1 hour. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.
