Better Homes and Cookies

Recipe for chocolate oatmeal cookies:

2 cups sugar
1 stick margarine - 1/2 cup
1/2 cup milk

Boil 3 minutes

In a bowl, put:

3 cups quick oats
4 tbsp cocoa
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup nut meats

Pour boil mix over and mix. Drop by tsp on waxed paper

(note: the wonderful Stephanie points out that this is a no-bake recipe. I should have known better)

Found in the January 1933 issue of "Better Homes and Gardens."

No, no baking necessary. This is a recipe for "no bake" cookies. The heated boiled mixture does enough cooking of the bigger pieces of ingredients, then solidifies, and makes a kind of "fudge" texture. (And you can't bake waxed paper)
