Simple Unbaked Cookies

This is my mom's unbaked cookies recipe. The are so quick to make. They may take a little while to set up. Sometimes they set up right away. They sure are tasty! If you would like another version of unbaked cookies, I have those too. The other recipe is a has a richer, more complex flavor.
Here is where to find those.

You will need a large pan. A Dutch oven or similar size works great.
You will also need waxed paper, aluminum foil, or buttered baking sheets.

Ingredients:

2 cups sugar
2 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup milk
3 cups dry oatmeal
3 Tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine the oatmeal and cocoa powder in a large bowl. Set aside.
In the pan mix the sugar, butter, and milk.
Stir and bring to a boil over medium high heat.
Quickly, add the oatmeal and cocoa powder along with the vanilla extract.
Stir in well and take off heat.
By spoonfuls drop onto waxed paper, aluminum foil, or buttered cookie sheets.

This will make a few dozen, depending on the size you make them.

Enjoy!

  1. Never heard of unbaked cookies (besides cookie dough). These would be good for Passover!

    1. Theresa, When I grew up, everyone I knew made them. I don't see them as much anymore. I never thought about them being good for Passover.

    1. My husband's grandma did hers that way. The other version I link to has peanut butter and uses powdered sugar instead of granulated. I am better off making these because I like the other ones too much.
