Cookies...because who wants healthy food?

I was reminded by my blogging cohort that I've never posted the recipe for our heading picture. Sorry about that. There's a lot of recipes I haven't posted. And a lot of recipes I've posted without pictures.

Round 3 of our Christmas baking brought the waffle cookies around again, so I decided to post the recipe - finally - along with another favorite...the No-Bake Cookie.

Wonderful Waffle Cookies

1/2 cup melted butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 beaten eggs
6 tbsp. cocoa
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix wet ingredients, then add dry. Heat waffle iron. Drop 1 tbsp. per section. Cook 1 minute. Cool, frost and enjoy. My favorite frosting (and the one pictured) is a cream cheese/mint frosting. Make it a little runnier so it is almost a glaze consistency.

No Nonsense No-Bake Cookies

2 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
4 Tbsp. cocoa
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cup oatmeal

In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, milk, butter and cocoa. Cook on medium. Bring to a boil; boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Add peanut butter, vanilla and oatmeal. Stir and drop by spoonfuls on wax paper. Cool at room temperature.
