No Fail No Bake Cookies

I grew up eating No Bake Cookies.  My mom has made hundreds of these simple and delicious cookies.  They get their name because they are made on the stove top, spooned onto parchment paper, and they set up as they cool.  They are a simple cookie but they can be a little tricky, this recipe is as close to perfect as it gets, but you will still need keep an eye on the clock as you boil the butter and sugar mixture.  If you boil them too hard and too long they will crumble and if they do not boil long enough they will not set up.

No Bake Cookies

2 cups sugar
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter

Bring to a strong but gentle boil and time for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Remove from heat and mix in the following all at the same time.

2 tablespoons cold milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
3 cups rolled oats

Mix thoroughly and spoon heaping tablespoons onto parchment paper.  Let sit at least 30 minutes.
