These cookies may also be called penuche oatmeal drops. Penuche describes the original flavor of fudge. It’s what fudge was before someone brilliant decided to add chocolate.
It’ll be hard to wait for these goodies to cool enough to handle. You may speed up the process in the refrigerator.
* 2 cups light brown sugar
* 1/2 cup unsalted butter
* 1/2 cup milk
* 3/4 cup chopped nuts
* 3 cups rolled oats
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan, stir in the sugar and milk. Bring to a boil, stirring often.
In another bowl stir together the oats, nuts, and vanilla.
Pour the sugar and butter over the oats and stir until they are thoroughly coated. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto wax paper.
Attempt to let the cookies rest undisturbed until they have cooled completely. Really, stop snitching bites, I saw that.
