Remember my flood? Well, I decided to make cookies for our neighbors as a good-will gesture. Not that cookies make up for my washer raining on their apartment, and they know that it was an accident, but I still felt like I should do something. I hope they liked them.
So, I had a bit of a blonde moment and forgot to take pictures of the cookies before I took them to the neighbors, so I borrowed this one from Brown Eyed Baker:
1 3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
4 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 tsp. vanilla
In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, milk, butter and cocoa. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 1/2 minutes (begin timing once the mixture comes to a hard boil.) Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, oats and vanilla. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper. Let cool until hardened.
