No Bake Cookies

Every Tuesday over at http://thissoutherngirlsnest.blogspot.com/
Joanna is doing 52 weeks of cookies. This is only week 5 so you have plenty of time to join us. What a great way of finding new recipes especially now with the holidays right around the corner.
Mine for this week is one of my favorites. I remember my Mom teaching me how to make them and then every time we had unexpected company to drop in guess what I got to make. They are so quick and simple.

No Bake Cookies
2 cups sugar
2 tbsp cocoa
1 stick margarine
1/2 cup milk
1 cup peanut butter (smooth)
3 cups quick oatmeal
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Boil sugar, cocoa, margarine, and milk. Add peanut butter, vanilla, and pecans. Remove from heat. Stir until peanut butter is melted and smooth. Stir in oatmeal. Drop by spoonfuls on waxed paper to set.
