"I got this recipe from a father of one of my Girl Scouts in Mississippi in 1973. It's a favorite at my house and the Girl Scout is now the mother of my four grandchildren. Enjoy!" — Dorothy Hodges

unsweetened cocoa powder
quick cooking oats
my family loves these! I do them a little differently though. I pour the whole batch into a 9x13 in pan with plastic wrap on the bottom, then cut them into squares once they're cooled. It just works better for us
For ease and simplicity, certainly 5*; for taste, however - well, you get about what you'd expect for a quick minute and a half cookie. Will definately keep as it's a no brainer and would be great when you're hit with unexpected company. Thanks so much for recipe.
I made these last night with my two boys. We only made one change, we used super chunk peanut butter instead of smooth. As we made this together, I told the kids about how I had made this as a child with my Grandmother and how it seemed like forever waiting for these cookies to set up so I could have one. To hurry up the cooling process for a few, I dropped a couple on a dinner plate covered with wax paper and stuck them in the fridge. We had a good time together, they set up perfectly and taste just like I remember.
Creamy peanut butter works fine in Minute Cookies, but crunchy peanut butter is the best! Those little bits of peanuts really send the yum-o-meter through the roof!
This recipe was origanally known as Preacher Cookies. In the country you could see the preacher coming up the road and this cookie could be prepared before he arrived.
It's so many of my family and friends favorite cookie. One key is to make sure the mixture is at a full rolling boil before you begin your time, otherwise they can either end up gooey or crumbly and using real butter helps. Make these with the exact ingredients stated and directions given and you will have a great cookie every time. Thanks again!!!
Yikes, these are addictive. Also seriously heavy. This was my first experiment with no-bake cookies, and I may be hooked.
Followed the recipe. Timing is very important. Came out great. These get eaten up. Even by the teen who doesn't eat oatmeal! Great.
