We’re fond of saying Wisconsin B&Bs are never cookie-cutter but many do serve cookies! Care to add a new cookie recipe to your holiday repertoire? How about this one from Hamilton House B&B in Whitewater for Boiled Cookies.
2 cups sugar 1/3 cup cocoa 1 stick butter ½ cup milk 1 tsp vanilla ½ cup peanut butter 3 cups quick oats
Combine sugar, cocoa, butter and milk in saucepan over low heat. Bring to a boil and continue boiling for exactly 1½ minutes. This part is important or they won’t set up. Remove from heat. Add vanilla, peanut butter and oats. Mix well. Spoon onto wax paper and cool. Try to wait until set before serving!
