Preacher Cookies (Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies)

The other day I made what we call, "Preacher Cookies".  My family used to make them for pot lucks at church all the time. I guess that's why we call them Preacher Cookies. Quick, easy, and fast recipe to make with no baking.

Here's our old recipe for them.

Preacher Cookies
Preacher Cookies or Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

1 stick butter or margarine
2 cups of sugar
4 tablespoons of cocoa
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup peanut butter (sometimes I like to use the crunchy)
3 cups quick oatmeal
1 tablespoon vanilla

Put peanut butter, oatmeal and vanilla in a bowl and set aside. Mix butter, sugar, cocoa, milk and salt in a pot and bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute. Pour hot mixture over oatmeal, peanut butter and vanilla in bowl. Stir together quickly and drop by tablespoons on wax paper. Have to work quickly, they get hard fast. We like ours a little big. Let cool and that's it.
