A sweet deal (...aka my cookie recipe)!
Here is my contribution to the "virtual cookie exchange" I suggested yesterday!
These require no baking and you likely already have the ingredients at home...
CHOCOLATE OATMEAL DROP COOKIES
2 Cups sugar
3 Tablespoons cocoa
1/2 Cup milk
1/4 Cup butter or margarine
3 Cups quick cooking oatmeal (NOT instant!)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 Cup nuts (optional)
Bring sugar, cocoa, milk and butter to a boil.
Cook for one minute, then remove from heat.
Add remaining ingredients.
Drop by teaspoonfuls on wax paper.
Let stand and cool for approximately 90 minutes.
