Mary's Noboatie Cookies
- 6 Cups Cane Sugar
- 3 Sticks Butter (1 1/2 Cups)
- 1 1/2 Cups of Milk
- 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
- 3 Cups of Creamy Peanut Butter (the 28 oz jar works perfect)
- 9 Cups of Quick-Cooking Oats
Assemble all ingredients first and have within easy reach; I find it is easier to have the peanut butter in a small bowl with the vanilla stirred in.
Find a clear enough counter/table top to lay out some wax paper, you will need enough room for about 100 cookies – I have found a card table works great.
In a large pot (5 or more quarts), over medium heat, melt the butter, add the sugar and mix thoroughly, then add the milk. Bring to a rapid boil for ONE FULL MINUTE.
Remove from heat and carefully add the peanut butter/vanilla mixture; stir till all combined. Add oatmeal and stir until the mixture begins to cool; transfer to a large bowl. Using a tablespoon, transfer small scoops of mixture onto the waxed paper; allow about a half-inch between cookies. Let cool until set-up.
