1 1/2 cups sugar
6 tablespoons butter
6 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 1/2- 3 cups rolled or quick oats
Mix sugar, butter and milk in a large sauce pan. Bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and peanut butter. Mix in oats. Let stand for a minute or two, then transfer by the spoonfuls to wax paper. Allow to cool before storing.
(I store mine in an airtight container in the fridge. Storing them in the cookie jar made them taste kind of like sour milk to me.)
