Cookie Swap SHF/IMBB: Sesame-Butter and Oatmeal No Bake Cookies

Img_3477_4

The SHF and IMBB events have teamed up to bring us a cookie-swap.  This event should leave everyone with plenty of sweet ideas for the holiday season.

Sadly, our place in Kraków has no oven.  I have been at more of a loss with cooking that I expected.  The bright side is that I am learning new recipes (though I would really love an oven all the same. . .).

For this event I made sesame-butter and oatmeal no-bake cookies.  These take a matter of minutes to create.  While I have to admit that I would rather a just-baked cookie any day, for those of us without an oven these are a delicious option.

Sesame-Butter and Oatmeal No-Bake Cookies

In a medium sized pot bring to boil 1 1/2 C of sugar, 3 Tbl good cocoa powder, 1/2 C of milk, and 1/4 of butter.  Cook 1 minute at a boil.  It should bubble and froth. 

Remove from the heat and immediately add 3 C of quick-cook oatmeal, 1/2 C of sesame-butter (or peanut-butter), 1 tsp vanilla, a dash of cinnamon, and 1/2 C of hazelnuts.

Drop by large spoonfuls onto wax or parchment paper.  Let stand a half hour or until cool.
