Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always a quick, tasty treat. I've been making this cookie since I was a young teenager. We never made it with peanut butter, but always put a dash of vanilla in it at the same time as the oatmeal.Everyone loves it when I make these and they go very quickly. This is a GREAT recipe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too hot to to turn oven on! We love these! Mom used to make these all the time. I know this was the recipe she used, cuz she never added peanut butter or coconut as some recipes I've seen. Perfect for a sweet treat without using oven on a hot day. Brings back great memories! Thanks!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I remember Home Ec class we made these cookies with baking chocolate (not cocoa), sugar, margarine, oats, and no milk. These taste great but remain soft & sticky even after refrigerating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these I've made them for 40 years. And we all still love them. I have used crunchy peanut butter. It's great and have put chopped pecans in them. They are great and simple.
