This was just one of the treats that my Mom whipped up for us kids to enjoy after school. I also made these for my girls and it was a recipe they often pulled out and made during their growing up years. They re-named them 'Mush Cookies'. In there own kitchens today their recipe cards read Mush Cookie. They are quick and easy and most often we all have the simple ingredients in our pantries.
No Bake Quick Oat Cookies1 1/4 cups white sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 cup milk
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups quick oats
In a sauce pan melt butter. Stir in milk, sugar and cocoa. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved and mixture gets bubbly. Continue to cook for about 1 minute.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and then stir in oatmeal all at once until no dry flakes remain.
Line cookie sheets with parchment paper and using 2 tea spoons drop small mounds of cookie mixture onto pans.
Place pans in fridge so that cookies set.
