"Raggedy Robbins" aka Peanut Butter No Bakes!

For as long as I have lived the no bake cookie has been a favorite of mine. The best part about no bake cookies is that it takes no time to satisfy your craving! You don't even have to wait for the cool down...go ahead lick the pan!! That's the part I like best...the warm gooey stuff!

Anyhow, I came across this version of a no bake while looking at Big Red Kitchen's blog. I was drawn to these cookies immediately because of the peanut butter! (if you didn't know by now Peanut Butter and Banana flavored things are my weakness!) Not only that, but I really hadn't ever heard of the "Raggedy Robin" until I stumbled across this recipe. After seeing this recipe I did some research on them and sure enough Raggedy Robin's are everywhere!!! HA Who would have thought!! I knew I would be making these cookies for sure, I just felt like I needed an excuse to do so...afterall, if I keep making cookies (or anything for that matter) just because the recipe looks good, my waist line is going to suffer!! LOL So with the Superbowl party I had coming up, I had a good excuse to try the cookies out. And let me tell you...these are one of my top favorite cookies!! They are so easy to make and so delicious! Everyone loved them at the party. I actually think I may even have liked them better than the chocolate version of the no bake cookie. Give 'em a try...
Raggedy Robin's
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups quick cooking oats
In a large Dutch Oven mix sugar, white chocolate chips, butter, and milk. Stir over medium heat and bring to a rolling boil. Boil one minute (after rolling boil starts). Remove from heat.
Quickly stir in vanilla, peanut butter, and oatmeal. Working quickly, drop by tablespoons onto waxed paper. I topped mine with some extra white chocolate chips. Cool for 20 minutes.
