Here's our old recipe for them.
|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.
