12 days of Christmas Cookies: Day 1
Out of all of the cookies that I have eaten during the Holidays, the no-bake cookies are the ones that first come to mind. I’m sure part of it had to do with the four siblings, each of us competing for our favorite cookies. Part of me believes that my passion for no-bakes is due to the fact that if I had a no-bake, it meant one less for my brother and sisters. Such was the fun of sibling rivalry during Christmas time.
So when choosing cookies for the “12 days of Christmas Cookies” this was the first cookie that what I wanted to make. Because nothing say “Holidays” like the cherished memories of passive-aggressive behavior.
- 4 Tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
In a sauce pan placed over medium heat, combine the butter, milk and sugar. Stir well until the butter is melted and bring to a light boil.
Add the chocolate chips and rolled oats. Mix until the chocolate chips melt, combine with the sugar and coat the oats. Add the vanilla and stir.
Using a tablespoon, scoop up some of the batter and drop onto wax or parchment paper. Allow to cool. You can refrigerate to speed up the solidification.
