-1/2 cup milk
-1/2 cup butter (1 whole stick)
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-pinch of salt (one good shake from shaker)
-1/2 cup peanut butter
-3 cups quick cooking oats

*Melt butter in lg. saucepan, add sugar, cocoa powder and milk. BOIL for one minute, remove from burner, stir in vanilla, salt, peanut butter and oats. Mix well.

*Allow cookies to cool (will harden as they cool) for at least 1 hour.

-I don't know about you, but my kids' have never let these cookies go untouched for that long :)
