    Maybe we could start a thread of cookie recipes? If we do it now then we have plenty of time to pick & choose & try recipes before Christmas? What does everybody think?

    I love this idea with the cookie recipes. This is one of my favorites, can't go wrong with it.

    No Bake Cookies

    2 cups sugar
    1/2 cup milk
    1/2 tsp. salt
    2 heaping tbsp. cocoa

    Bring to boil for 1 1/2 minutes, then remove from heat and add;

    2 tbsp vanilla
    1/2 cup peanut butter
    2 1/2 cup oatmeal

    Then drop by teaspoonfuls on wax paper. Cool completely before removing from wax paper. This are very good.

    I'm actually not sure why they are called COP cookies. (I got this recipe in an email.) I think its because it has Chocolate, Oatmeal, & Peanut Butter?
