And Cue the Cravings!

Sitting here, around 3:30 today, I had this intense craving for no-bake oatmeal and peanut butter cookies (or as my family calls them, Preacher Cookies). I made a special trip to the store for sugar and oatmeal, and just finished a batch of cookies... and let me just tell you..... DIVINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Sidenote: The reason they call them Preacher Cookies? When the preacher stops by and you don't have anything to offer him, you can make these up really quick. My mom's had this recipe for YEARS....)

Preacher Cookies

2 cups sugar
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup cocoa powder

-Bring to rolling boil, and boil for 3 minutes.
-Remove from heat and add:

3 cups quick oats
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla

-Mix well, and spoon out onto wax paper for cooling.

My brother always loved those cookies when we were growing up. I think we just called them "no bake cookies"...I like your name better!
