Uncooked Cookies

Recipe source unknown

I've had a lot of uncooked cookies in my lifetime and I have too one with chocolate and another with just peanut butter.  Both are fabulous.  Just a side note:  I never use margarine anymore in any recipes even if it calls for it.  If you're going to make this fattening of a cookie you might as well just go for the real stuff!

Uncooked Cookies

1 cube margarine
½ c. milk
3 Tbsp. Cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. sugar
1 c. peanut butter
3 c. oats

Melt margarine, milk, cocoa, vanilla & sugar (rolling boil 1 min). Add peanut butter & oats. Mix
Drop by spoonful on wax paper and let cool.


  1. Do you have any tips on getting them the right consistency? I like no bake cookies, but mine normally turn out to be soupy piles on the tray unless I put them in the fridge or freezer and eat them cold.

    1. You got me thinking...I think the key is the boiling time. If you don't boil the sugar mixture enough it will turn out soupy but if you boil it too much it will be brittle and fall apart. In all the times I've ever made these they have never been runny. The oats help keep it together also. Also, definitely try it with the real butter it makes a huge difference. It make take a few tries but play around with the boiling time. And as funny as this sounds I try to stay away from baking goodies on rainy, humid days especially if they have to set up in some way. Call me superstitious.

  2. Thanks. I guess I can't be good at everything :) But I'll keep trying.
