A delicous made-on-top-of-the-stove cookie you'll want to sample again and again.

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.

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.

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.

  1. Combine: sugar, butter, and can milk in a pot.
  2. Boil 3-4 minutes on low-to-medium heat, stirring frequently, so that mixture doesn't stick to bottom of pot and burn.

Boil First 3 Ingredients


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 peanut clusters by tsp. onto a greased cookie sheet or a greased foil-lined cookie sheet to set.
