No-Bake Oatmeal Cookies

These rich, chewy cookies contain no wheat flour or eggs, and—good news on sweltering days when you feel like having cookies around the house—require no oven heat. All you do is boil milk with unsalted butter and sugar to add to a mix of old-fashioned oats, chocolate chips, peanut butter, and vanilla. Mix, then form into cookies on waxed paper–lined baking sheets. Chill until the cookies set up, then gorge. For a fun twist, scoop your favorite ice cream flavor in between two cookies to make ice cream sandwiches.

Instructions

  1. 1Add the oats, peanut butter, chocolate chips, and vanilla to a medium mixing bowl; set aside. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with waxed paper and set aside.
  2. 2Combine the butter, milk, and sugar in a small, heavy saucepan set over medium-high heat. Boil for 1 minute.
  3. 3Pour the hot milk mixture into the oat mixture and stir well. Drop spoonfuls onto the waxed paper and cool, refrigerated, until the cookies set. If you’re in a hurry, you can pop the cookies in the freezer to set faster. Remove from the waxed paper and serve.
