    I used 1 1/5 cups of sugar, evaporated milk and 4 tablespoons of peanut butter. The trick is you need to boil for 2 1/2 minutes or they will not set up. I have been so frustrated trying to get it right, but this will work for you!  -  12 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I used evaporated milk, creamy peanut butter and the extra teaspoon of vanilla another reviewer suggested and these turned out to be the creamiest best version of this no-bake cookie I've tried. I always forget the proportions for this old recipe and will definitely be using this one in my 'used often' staple of recipes. Thanks!  -  03 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    We love these, and they're so quick and easy. Bring the pot to a full, rolling boil (the whole surface is covered with bubbles) before you start the timer. Once you add the oats and peanut butter, keep stirring until it cools enough to get sticky and thick.  -  29 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
