No-Bake chocolate/oatmeal cookies - anyone have a recipe?Page 1 of 1    
I'm looking for a recipe for no-bake cookies we used to make in college all the time. I know some of the ingredients are cocoa, oatmeal, and peanut butter - just don't know the rest or the assembly directions. Anyone have the recipe?

Keep them coming! So far these look like different versions than what we made. (no pet milk or chocolate chips)

I'm guessing there must be tons of versions....

what on EARTH is "Pet milk" ???? I'm hoping it's some sort of canned milk product??? cuz ... otherwise ... that's just weird ...

I'm looking for a recipe for some cookies my Grandmother made for her children, beginning about 1912 or so ... I believe she never shared the recipe with her children ... and certainly not with the grandchildren ... by the time I came along, she ALWAYS had these cookies in a clear green glass cookie jar ... while I never SAW her MAKING the cookie DOUGH ... the dough was always in the frig when I got to her house ... she wrapped this very stiff cookie dough in used (store bought) bread wrappers in a roll ... and sliced them into about 1/4" slices ... baked them till they were crisp ... I always got the two end pieces cuz they weren't perfect and you "had to" eat your mistakes!

she MAY have used steel milled oats and finely chopped walnuts or pecans ... there must have been sugar but I can't decide whether it was brown or white ... I suspect she may have used lard even ... or shortening ...

it's a challenge!!!

MM - here's 3 recipes granny used to make. Second recipe says to put oats through a food chopper - this is to make them smaller and a more uniform size.

Ice-box Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups rolled oats
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup lard
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup sour milk OR buttermilk

Combine sugar, oats and flour. Cut in butter and lard as in making pastry. Lastly add the soda dissolved in the sour milk. Work together until it forms a dough. Then form into a large roll and chill at least overnight. Slice very thin for a crisp cookie and place on greased cookie sheets. Bake at 375°F.

Note: Recipe is so old no time was given ... I baked for 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup shortening
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda

Cream together shortening and sugars. Add eggs, vanilla and beat well. Sift together dry ingredients and add to shortening mixture. Put quick cooking oats through a food chopper, add. Shape dough into rolls 1-1/2" diameter. Chill 8-10 hours. Grease several cookie sheets. Slice rolls and place on greased sheet. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Ice-box Fruit Oatmeal Cookies (circa 1931)
3/4 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup stoned dates, cut finely
1 cup sifted flour
1 tsp. baking soda
3 cups rolled oats

Cream butter and add sugar. Add well beaten eggs, dates and currants. Sift flour and baking soda together and add to first mixture. Finally add rolled oats and stir well. Form into rolls and leave in ice box or cool place overnight. Slice thinly and bake on greased baking sheet in 350°F oven for 12-15 minutes.

thanks, Classic Chassis ...

think I'll try the 2nd one as it sounds like it might be the one ... my grandmother wouldn't have been able to put the oats thru a food chopper ... but she MIGHT have used "steel cut oats" ... which looks to me like oats put thru a food chopper!

I'll be creative, cut the recipe down and just go for it!

thanks so much for sharing ...

I used to be the one who ran the cranberry sauce thru the "meat" grinder ... 1 lb. fresh cranberries, a fresh orange and a fresh apple with maybe a cup of sugar? had to let it set for maybe a week ...

but, yeah ... fruit juices mixed with the oil from the grinder everywhere! and the only place I could fasten the grinder was onto the kitchen table!

that's why I made cooked cranberry sauce this year ... no grinder!
