No-Bake Peanut Cluster Cookies
I first tasted these cookies over at my mother-in-law's and just had to have the recipe. I had never tasted anything like them. I couldn't pin down what ingredients had been used and was intrigued by their delicious flavor.
Such a Unique and Delicious Flavor
Guests will be hard-pressed trying to figure out just what goes into these tasty cookies. They have a unique flavor and are soft and so very good.
Even better, you don't have to bake them in the oven. You can whip these up in about 5-10 minutes. All you need is a large pot and a few simple ingredients.
You make the mixture on the top of the stove, then drop by teaspoonfuls onto a greased pan, then place the pan into the fridge, and the cookies set up while they cool. Once solid, they can be stored in a tin.
No-bake top-of-stove cookies can be a godsend if you are pressed for time or you want to stock your freezer with tasty treats.
Stock up on can milk and roasted, unsalted peanuts and you can make these cookies at a moment's notice.
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/2 butter
- 2/3 cup can milk
- 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 cups quick oats
- 1 cup roasted peanuts, (unsalted)
Peanuts must be roasted, not raw; and they must be unsalted. Substitutions won't do.
Boil First 3 Ingredients
- Combine: sugar, butter, and can milk in a pot.
- Boil 3-4 minutes on low-to-medium heat, stirring frequently, so that mixture doesn't stick to bottom of pot and burn.
Remove From Heat. Stir in Peanut Butter and Vanilla
Fold in Oats...
Add in Peanuts
Use a flat surface when placing these cookies to set. A large cookie sheet works well.
Drop Onto Greased Pan and Chill Until Set
Drop peanut clusters by tsp. onto a greased cookie sheet or a greased foil-lined cookie sheet to set.
It never hurts to have recipes for no-bake cookies on hand. You'll never be stuck for something to make, either to satisfy a sweet tooth or for when company's coming.
