Yee Haw! Last night we had a Cowpoke Hoedown at the library and we had a grand ol’ time! We kicked up our heels and did some line dancing and made some very realistic no-bake cow pie cookies.
No-Bake Cow Pie Cookies (made in the microwave)
Recipe adapted from Cooks.com
1 stick butter
1 c. sugar
1/3 c. cocoa
1/2 c. milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. peanut butter
3 c. quick cooking oatmeal
Place butter, sugar, cocoa and milk in a glass bowl. Microwave 2 minutes on high. Stir. Then microwave on high for an additional 4 minutes, stirring after each minute. The sugar should be fully dissolved. Mix in the vanilla and peanut butter, until peanut butter is melted. Add oatmeal and drop by heaping tablespoons onto cookie sheet covered with waxed paper. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes or until set. Serve chilled.
3. Why Don’t We Just Dance (Electric Slide)
After a quick water and cookie break, we learned the electric slide steps- but we danced to country music.
