Stupid Cookies

Years ago, when Mr. Twingle and I started dating I was introduced to his mom's fabulous baking skills!  She always has fresh breads, pies and/or cookies in the house.

One of my favourite cookies are Oat Delights.  These are probably what some would call a macaroon; but, that we, my inlaws and I, refer to as STUPID cookies!

Why?

Well, you see, you can't eat just one.  And as you pop another cookie in your mouth you are forced to mutter "stupid cookies".  They're just so good you can't help but to eat them!

As I type this, I have a batch of these stupid cookies chilling in the fridge.

For those of you that would like to try these awesomely stupid cookies, here's the recipe:

Oat Delights - originally printed in 5 Roses


2 cups white sugar
6 Tbsp cocoa
1/2 cup butter or margerine
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
3 cups instant oats

Combine first 4 ingredients in saucepan, mix together and bring to a boil.
Remove from heat and add remaining ingredients.
Drop by teaspoonful onto waxpaper lined cookie sheets.
Chill.
