No Bake Oatmeal Cookies

Heather says: These cookies may also be called penuche oatmeal drops.   Penuche describes the original flavor of fudge.  It’s what fudge was before someone brilliant decided to add chocolate. It’ll be hard to wait for these goodies to cool enough to handle.  You may speed up the process in the refrigerator. Ingredients: * 2 cups…
