no-bake.jpgTonight was super great as far as cooking and, more importantly, baking! I made two recipes, both of which turned out yummy.

The first was, ironically, No Bake Cookies. This is the recipe from a friend at work (my first time making it):

2 c sugar
1 stick butter
1/2 c milk
3 T cocoa
…………
3c cooking oats
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 c nuts
1/2 c peanut butter

Heat first four ingredients in a sauce pan until it boils.
Time for two minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in last four ingredients.
Cool a bit to firm, then drop by teaspoons onto waxed paper.
Cool completely and store for up to one week in an airtight container.

2nd recipe was my Nearly Famous Brownie Cookies

1 1/2 sticks butter, melted
1/2 c cocoa
1 c sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
……………
2 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
6 oz chocolate chips
Powdered sugar in a small bowl

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Blend butter, cocoa and sugar until smooth but grainy.
Whisk in eggs and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, powder, soda and salt.
Add dry to wet ingredients and stir well.
Add chocolate chips.

Drop by teaspoonful into powdered sugar and roll into a ball.
Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet covered in foil.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Cool on pan for 5 minutes, then move to cooling racks.
Will keep in airtight container for up to 5 days. Best within 3 days.

Happy baking, y’all!
