Number 1 cookie for me, I made these constantly in the early 70’s, totally forgot about them until I ran across the in a local grocery store.

One of my family's favorites! I sometimes add raspberry or almond extracts to mix it up a bit!

I made this recipe with monk fruit sweetener instead of sugar, and used chunky peanut butter because that’s what I had. Delicious. Thanks for the recipe.

how much monk fruit did you use?


Are these soft?

Like meringue: firm on the outside and chewy on the inside. If they aren’t like this you did something wrong: either in boiling or not enough oats.

I double the cocoa for extra dark cookies.

I was hoping this was close to the recipe we used to make with my mom as kids, but they are coyingly sweet and I can hardly detect the peanut butter. Next time I'll reduce the sugar by 1/2 cup and up the peanut butter to at least 1/3 cup. Will have to see how it affects the texture

My mom made them with one cup of sugar and one cup of milk. Not as sweet and softer.
