or as our family knows them cow patties. Have you made them? Do you like them?
If you haven't here is a recipe.

Ingredients :
1/2 cup butter or 1/2 cup margarine
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
4 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup creamy jif peanut butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 -3 1/2 cups dry quick-cooking oats

Directions:

Prep Time: 5 minsTotal Time: 6 mins
1Add the first four ingredients into a 4-quart sauce pan.
2Bring to a rolling boil and hold for 1 minute.
3Remove from heat.
4Add peanut butter into the hot mixture and stir until melted.
5Add in vanilla. (almond extract is good also).
6Mix in the oats and drop by tablespoons onto wax paper.
7Let cool until set.
8*Please remember that even if you do follow the recipe exactly, it doesn't always turn out just right. I have had these not set up for me AND be hard and dry. But most of the time, the recipe is just right. I have also found that it makes a difference if you use quick cooking oats or old fashioned. In my experience it takes more old fashioned oats than quick cooking and I like the texture of the quick cooking better. When you make it a few hundred times like I have you learn a couple of things:) Also, Chunky peanut butter tends to make them more dry and crumbly.
