No Bake cookies made today 7/26/11
My earliest cooking/baking recollection
is making no-bake cookies.
I know that mother taught me all kinds of cookie recipes,
how to bake bread,
make a great pie complete with home-made rolled-out pie crust
and even 'from scratch' cakes.
I am thankful she taught me my way around a kitchen!
I learned to cook all kinds of casseroles,
as well as how to make a delicious roast with potatoes, onions, and carrots,
and all sorts of other recipes.
(She and I passed a lot on to my daughter.
I should have done more with my son.)
But one of my early cooking accomplishments has to be no bakes.
They are cheap, easy and quick to make, easy to clean up,
and everyone in our family likes them.
As you can see from the photos below,
I've had this recipe for a long time.
I use butter and quick, not old-fashioned oats.
I also only use 1/2 tsp vanilla.
I also prefer crunchy peanut butter instead of creamy.
You have to scoop them out and onto wax paper quickly,
because they start to harden in the pot other wise
and then they can be a bit dry.
