December 4--Unbaking!

Each December Day, I would make at least one cookie recipe--sometimes there would be cookie exchanges, when I baked 12 dozen cookies--a dozen for 12 people who shared their cookies with me.
The kids loved this tradition!  Me, not so much!
This was an easy recipe to have on hand for those days when friends dropped in to visit 
and the kids could make them too.
Unbaking!  is the way to go!
How about making these for your friends?
Unbaked Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies--my version:
2 C sugar, 8 Tbsp. cocoa, 1/2 C milk--bring to a rolling boil; remove from heat and add 1 stick of butter, 3 cups of Quaker one minute oats, 1 tsp vanilla.  Mix well and drop by teaspoon onto wax or parchment paper (we didn't have parchment so used wax paper) 
let harden and then EAT!
there was always some kid standing there to lick the pan!!


  1. We always made ours with peanut butter too. We called them 2-Minute Chocolates.

  2. Yummy! I'll need to try that addition! Thanks!

  4. Thanks Linda. It's been fun going through them
