Amish Boiled Cookies

These are what I call summertime cookies. They do not require heating a oven and heating up your home. You just have a little boiling of the ingredients.

Amish Boiled Cookies


1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups quick cooking oats (not instant)
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans


In a small saucepan over medium heat bring to a boil and cook butter, milk, sugar, and cocoa for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, salt and vanilla extract. Mix in oats and pecans. By teaspoon drop on wax paper and allow the cookies to stand unrefrigerated for 1 hour.

Store in an airtight container with wax paper between the layers.
