isn't that the most delightful little pincushion!?
[ found here ]
i want to make one just like it.

my life is complete.
i have discovered and somewhat mastered
a delicious no-bake cookie recipe.
i have had a deep fondness for no-bake cookies
ever since high school
when my best friend, little sister, and i
would make them often
... and by often i mean all the time ...

so do enjoy
and indulge.

No-Bake Cookies

Mix the following ingredients into a saucepan and boil for 1 and a half minutes :
2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk

After 1 and a half minutes of boiling remove from heat and stir in these ingredients :
1 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 cups oatmeal

Spoon onto wax paper (or tinfoil) and let harden/cool.

Devour some more.

tip: if your cookies aren't hardening and they seem gooey,
you didn't cook the first mixture long enough or you need to add more oatmeal.

i'm going to tinker around with it
cut the sugar, add some ingredients like raisins and such
to try to make it a little bit healthier
for Little Lady and i
... since we can eat a whole batch in one sitting ...
we are talented
