Really Yummy! Make 1/2 quantity though, I did and it made 20. I used some set honey instead of the karo syrup. They didn't go very firm, so I'm keeping them in the fridge.

This is the no bake oatmeal recipe I will be using from now on...the Karo syrup really makes a difference.

These are wonderful!! They set more quickly if you do not use Jiff peanut butter. Jiff peanut butter is oily and causes them not to set as well. Peter Pan is a good choice. Everyone loves these cookies!!!! So easy to make and simply delicious!!! This is a good recipe site!! So glad to discover it!!!!!!
