steamy 4th of july

hottest hot 4th of july! super fun family reunion in lyme, nh. thankful for a cool stream, a great family and a shady porch to sit on!

here is the recipe for my grandmother's "no bake cookies". i always make them for the family reunion(and lots of other times because i LOVE them!)


2 c. sugar
1/4 c. cocoa
1/2 c. milk
1/4 c. (1/2 stick) butter

put together in a medium saucepan, and bring to a full boil over medium heat. (NOTE: boil just long enough so that there are bubbles over the entire surface of the mixture and then turn it right off . you boil it only a very short time!)

remove from heat and add:

1 t. vanilla
2/3 c. peanut butter
3 c. quick oats

mix all together and drop from a teaspoon onto cookie sheets. i line mine with wax paper to make it easy to get the cookies off. put into the refrigerator until they set up, then try not to eat all of them!!!

keep cool!!!!!
