Preacher's Coming...get the cookies



More than the recipe, the story behind the name of this cookie, is our favorite. We called these "no bakes" in the west. When we moved to Virginia everyone called them "Preacher Cookies". Finally my professor at RU told me the story of this cookie. Supposedly, these cookies are so fast that if you see the preacher coming up the road you can make a batch to serve up before he gets to your house.

Isn't that delightful?

Recipe for no bakes can be found everywhere on line. Some have nuts, oatmeal, peanut butter...everything but the kitchen sink kind of cookies.

Preacher Cookies

  • 1 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder

Boil for 1 1/2 minutes from the time it starts a rolling boil. Add rest of ingredients.

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 3 cup quick oats
  • 1 tea vanilla

Driving down Wadsworth the other day, I said to myself, I sure do miss those Taylors.
