Saucy Sunday – Cow Pies

Some people call these no bake cookies.

We call ’em Cow Pies.

These are also on the request list. Not just for the holidays.

The Captain and Boo request these throughout the year. Whenever they get a hankering.

Here’s what you’ll need.


Oh, plus a half cup of milk.

Melt one stick of butter.


Then add one half cup milk, two cups sugar and four teaspoons cocoa.


Bring to a boil. Boil one minute (also to a soft ball stage, if you want to use a candy thermometer).

Remove from heat and add one half cup peanut butter. Stir to mix completely.


Mix in two teaspoons vanilla. Add three cups quick oats and mix until oats are completely coated.


Drop by teaspoon onto waxed paper and let cool.


Oh, and by the way, Santa loves these cookies. 😀

  1. This is one of our favorite cookies. I posted my recipe in Sept. under “Have a cookie, it’ll make you feel better.” The only difference is that I use 4Tbls of cocoa and 3 tsp of vanilla and boil it for 2 minutes before adding the peanutbutter, vanilla, and oats. I think they are the unofficial cookie of Jackson Co., everyone loves them.

  2. Great recipe that I printed for my wife to make. You have a really interesting blog. I loved your snow widget so much I added it to my blog as well. Have a Merry and a Happy. Blue Skies.

  3. Haven’t had these in ages! Thanks for the quick receipe.
    I made your sausage balls this week. Hubs wasn’t sure when I was making them he said they always seem dry. I’d never made them myself but I listened to you and watched them and he loved them – thanks!
