The cookie goes together quickly! It is a good idea to have ingredients measured.
And a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper.
You start by bringing the sugar, milk, cocoa and butter to a boil.
Then stir in the oats, peanut butter and vanilla.
Here's where you have to act quickly, as the cookies start to set really fast. Just scoop, or spoon, the cookie mixture onto the prepared cookie sheet. Then transfer to the refrigerator to set.

* Chunky peanut butter can be substituted, it seemed to give the cookies a softer texture.
