Summer Cookies

Since “chanting” for Spring didn’t really work–remember last week’s snow episode?–I figure we’ll jump right ahead and try sliding gracefully into summer. I mean, seriously…what have we got to lose ?

These little diddies should help—don’t you think?

Summer Cookies

Boil for 1 minute the following:

Β½ cup butter

1 cup white sugar

1 cup brown sugar

ΒΌ tsp. salt

3 T. cocoa

1/2 cup milk

Remove from the heat and stir in the following:

3/4 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup marshmallow cream

1 tsp.vanilla

3 C quick oats

Drop by tablespoons onto wax paper and allow to cool.

Be on the lookout for cookie tornadoes–they are everywhere and can quickly cause cookie devastation…of sorts.

Store whatever you have left…

in an air tight container…

in another country.

  1. I haven’t had those in years. I think I might need to make those again! Or use the recipe on the blog! πŸ˜‰

  2. Did you notice the secret ingredient that we snuck in there? It makes the cookie smoother and more like…fudge.

    dang good.

  3. Marshmallow cream! Oooh, that sounds so good. My sister and I used to make a big batch of these and then hide them under our bed to nibble on whenever we wanted over the next week or so! Our poor mom.

  4. oh, yeah–it tastes like Fantasy Fudge…with oatmeal. My boys can eat these in one sitting–unless of course I triple the batch…then it takes them a couple of hours. Ha ha!

    Hey–my friend–we get our boys back next week!!!


  5. I’ve always wanted to make these cookies and it looks like I waited until the right time and got the best recipe complete with secret ingredient! Thanks for the recipe!

  6. I need to make a batch of cookies for the cookie cooler at girl’s camp next week and was planning to make no-bake cookies. This recipe looks like a lot of fun and I’ll have to give it a whirl.

    Pray for us young women all over the stake to stay warm and dry next week at Shalom.
    I’m scared πŸ™

  7. And it’s yummy–in fact, I’m going to add even more the next time I make it, just to see how far I can push the gooey limit.


  8. These were tasty!!! πŸ™‚ I like the marshmallow creme trick! Good one! And I like that little Cookie Tornado! πŸ˜‰ Good thing we aren’t COMPLETELY out of control around here! πŸ˜‰

  9. Oh yeah! i haven’t made these in ages. We have to leave the peanut butter out because hubby is alleric, but the marshmellow cream is definitely and IN!! thanks so much for sharing! (you are not helping my diet!)

  10. this is off topic, but what is the date of the vampire movie–the one you will sell out the theater for? I’m ordering bookmarks and need to know when I should have them so YOU can have them……

  11. I love making these cookies. They are best when they are warm. YUM YUM I might make these tonight.

  12. Oh, yikes…you guys are brave. It rained us to bits one year–but it was still very fun. We just sat in the tents and played games for 3 days. I actually liked it.


  13. Nor my own…
    I just need to fine a sweet single man that likes fluffy ladies and all my worries would be over…so to speak. Ha ha…

  14. My family begs me to make these all the time. Well not all the time. But pretty darn close. These are my favorite cookies. They are the real reason I am now fat. I’ll have to try your recipe with the marshmallow creme. When ever I talk about summer cookies, most people don’t have a clue what I’m talking about. But when I tell how they are made, they then understand why they are called summer cookies. No need to heat up the kitchen with a hot oven. Perfection for summer, and for getting fat.
