Solomon Recipes

I started this blog so I could pass along family recipes to my children. Most of these recipes are Eaton recipes.

But, no need to share the last name Solomon. The majority of the recipes are made by me, Mother Goose, my Sister in law, Gretchen and two friends Leta and HK. If you would like to be a contributor, just holla!

Shhh... if you know us please get to know our blog names! Thanks, Mother Goose!

Dream Cookies

I've been making these cookies since I could reach the stovetop to stir the pot by standing on a chair. My Dad brought the recipe home from the Navy after the Korean War. No bake and easy to make!

1 stick butter (1/2 cup)

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup cocoa powder

2 cups sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup peanut butter

3 cups quick oats

In a medium size saucepan melt the butter, add milk, cocoa and sugar. Heat over med-high heat stirring constantly until mixture comes to a rapid boil, then continue to stir and boil one minute. (Timing at the point is important to the finished product. To much boiling will result in dry cookies; to little and they won't set up.)

Remove pan from the heat; stir in the vanilla and peanut butter until mixture is smooth. Add oatmeal and stir until well combined.

Immediately pour into a lightly greased 9X12 pan (or spoon onto wax paper in individual size cookies). Allow to cool completely. Cut into squares to serve.

This is a recipe I have been making since grade school too! I didn't have a recipe when I was a kid and tried and tried to figure it out! I would get in trouble for making it and hiding it in my room when it didn't work! NOW I have a recipe and make it regularly for my kids and they love it too!
