      Title: Oatmeal fudge cookies
 Categories: Cookies, No-bake, Usenet
      Yield: 3 Dozen
 
      3 c  Rolled oats
      1 t  Vanilla extract
      1 c  Nuts, chopped (optional)
      2 c  Sugar, granulated
    1/2 c  Cocoa powder
    1/2 c  Evaporated milk
    1/4 lb Butter
 
  Combine oats, vanilla and nuts in a bowl and set aside.
  
  Combine sugar, cocoa and evaporated milk in a heavy, 2-quart sauce
  pan. Bring to a full rolling boil over medium-high heat, STIRRING
  CONSTANTLY. Let boil, while stirring, for 2 minutes.
  
  Remove pan from heat and add the butter.  Stir until butter is melted
  and incorporated.  Quickly add oat mixture to pan and stir until well
  mixed.
  
  Drop by the spoonful onto waxed paper.  Let cool for 2 hours to set.
  
  NOTES:
  
  *  No-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies -- This may be my all-time
  favorite cookie recipe.  I don't remember where I got this particular
  version of the recipe but I remember my great-aunt making these
  cookies for us as kids.
  
  *  My great-aunt never put nuts in these cookies.  I like nuts but I
  find that they get lost in the recipe. If you want the oats to be less
  prominent, use quick-cooking oats. They will fall apart somewhat in
  the final mixing.
  
  *  A heavy sauce pan makes burning the fudge less likely but stir,
  stir, stir, anyway.
  
  *  The cooking time at boil is important.  Cooked too little the
  cookies will not set; too much and they start to harden before you
  get them out of the pan.
  
  *  These cookies are better the next day, if there are any left.
  
  : Difficulty:  easy to moderate.
