"When I was a little girl, my grandmother and I used to whip up this no-bake snack to munch on while playing rummy," shares Tammy Schroeder of Aitkin, Minnesota. "I love to throw a batch together and remember those special times."
Since my grandchildren like frosted cookies, I came up with this chocolate-topped version that satisfies them and is almost fuss-free for me. I have used the recipe for years and now make them for my great-grandchildren.
I'm not surprised when people say these are the best cookies they've ever had...I agree! Oats make them hearty and more delicious than traditional peanut butter cookies. —Stacia McLimore, Indianapolis, Indiana
My five children love maple and brown sugar oatmeal, so I decided to add those ingredients to my oatmeal cookies. The first time I made them, they vanished in just a few days! —Karen Nienaber, Erskine, Minnesota
My husband and I were taking care of our two grandsons, Nathan and Brandon, and their mom left the ingredients for this fun dessert. The boys loved pressing the dough into the pan, spreading the frosting and adding the candy "pizza" toppings. They were so proud to serve yummy wedges to their parents when they returned.—Ruth Shefcyk, Lake Orion, Michigan
These fuss-free cookies have stood the test of time. I got the recipe from my mother-in-law back in 1949...and my grown daughter asked me to share it with her so she could make them for Christmas!—Elizabeth Hunter, Prosperity, South Carolina
"The recipe for these scrumptious cookies was handwritten in a cookbook I received from my husband's grandmother," notes Karin Woodbury of Ocala, Florida. "She told my husband when he was young that these treats were a good way to get his carrots. He loved then anyway!"
