Goo Cookies


So we like to cook, a lot. For those of you that have known me, Märia, in my younger years that may seem crazy. I told Steven when we were married he better like cooking because I doubt I'd ever do it and for the first 4 years of our marriage, he was the chef. Then one day I decided to actually go for it. I now cook and we like to cook. So, we decided that we would make a recipes section.

The first recipe is fun to make with a toddler "No Bake Oatmeal Cookies." These are good because toddlers love cookies and you don't actually have to use the oven. Please be warned however, if you are cooking with a toddler, you will make a mess. It doesn't matter what you're making, the kitchen will be trashed. In the following pictures the kitchen was already trashed to begin with though. Felicity was asleep and Seporah needed attention, I was trying to clean, but it just wasn't working. Seporah needed Mommy. I said ok, let's cook!

First put 1 cup chocolate chips, 4 Tablespoons peanut butter, 3 cups oats, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in a mixing bowl.

Then put 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup milk, and 2 cups sugar in a saucepan and bring to a rolling boil for 1 minute.

Combine the hot mixture with the oatmeal an chocolate chip mixture and stir well. Then drop by the spoonfuls onto waxed paper. Let cool and harden. You may place in the fridge for faster hardening.
