What kind of cookie is that Mary?

"Oh, it's the different kind!! You know, the kind you eat with a fork!!"

Mud Puddles
2 sticks butter
1 1/2 C. all natural sugar
1/2 C. brown sugar
1/2 C. milk
1 teas. vanilla
3 T. cocoa
1 C. natural peanut butter
3 C. oatmeal
In a large sauce pan combine butter, sugars, milk, vanilla, cocoa, and peanut butter. Melt all together and stir in vanilla and oatmeal. Spoon onto wax paper to cool. As you can see from the photos, we never let them rest long enough to harden!!

I have a friend that makes something like this. She adds whey protien. I couldn't find her recipe. I tried some the other day. Pretty good coockie - not too sweet.

Mary looks adorable eating her cookie she eats with a fork! : )

My Wes said to me yesterday...

I said "we need to rake up some more pine straw" and he replied...

"I don't do yard work... until I am married."

We call them "Stove Top" cookies, but we've never made them with brown sugar. That sounds really good. These are our favorite "go to" cookies. Even if you mess them up, they taste good!

Ah, we called these preacher cookies. So the story goes, people would make them as they saw the preacher heading their way down the road becaus ethey were so quick to do.

They are so yummy - comfort food for sure!

We call them, "No Bake Cookies," and put them in the freezer to help set up. My kids have always loved them.
