Farm Bound

lancaster, pa, farm We're off to Lancaster, PA for the weekend. I plan to pick up some apple butter, shoo fly pie and whoopies pies while I am there. Perhaps jeans in the next size up? If you're in the mood for a little sugar without the baking, give these a whirl. Made them last night. They're more like a chunky fudge than a cookie, but who am I to mess with my grandma's recipe? No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies 2 cups sugar 4 tablespoons of cocoa 1 stick of butter 1/2 cup of milk 1 cup of peanut butter 1 tablespoon of vanilla 3 cups of plain oatmeal (quick cook) In a heavy saucepan bring the sugar, cocoa, butter and milk to a boil. Boil for 1 minute, then remove from heat and add the peanut butter, vanilla and oatmeal. Blend well, then use a tablespoon to drop onto a large sheet lined with wax or parchment paper. Chill until cool.

Darn you. I walked to the store after dinner expressly to get oatmeal to make these cookies (sans PB) but then talked myself out of making them when I realized it would be the second batch within a month.
After reading your post, all I can think about is making these cookies!! Your weekend sounds delightful!

I know that recipe… it definitely means you're buying the next size in jeans! They are addicting… don't try them!
