What!?! We are half way through the 12 weeks of Christmas Cookies? I'm having so much fun I don't want to stop! This was a very busy week for me and it got me to thinking... Maybe I should make a "no-bake" cookie since let's face it at one point or another during the holidays we all have one of those weeks. You know where before you know it's Thursday and you've either forgot to bake cookies for an upcoming event...or your husband drops the bomb of unexpected company coming over and you are too busy throwing things in closets to bake cookies while watching out the front window to see when they pull in the driveway. Hmmm, sounds like I'm kinda familiar with that one, doesn't it? I believe we all need one or two of those quick no-bake cookies in our recipe stash for the unexpected.
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
4 tbsp. water
1 tsp. vanilla
6 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
4 cups quick cooking oats
Cream the butter, water, and vanilla together. Add the cocoa powder, granulated sugar, and oatmeal; mix well. Roll dough into 1" balls and roll in either powdered sugar, flaked coconut, or chopped nuts. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
