Haystacks



Haystacks are a type of cookie that my family has been making as long as I can possibly remember.  They are a delicious drop cookie that is really quick to make, and makes a large batch (which is necessary when these are around!).


These are very sweet, but so tasty! This recipe makes about 3 1/2 to 4 dozen cookies.


Haystacks
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  1. In a large pot, place the sugar, cocoa, butter (or margarine) and milk
  2. Bring the first four ingredients to a boil over medium heat
  3. Allow the mixture to boil for 1 minute, then remove from heat
  4. Mix in the rolled oats, coconut, and vanilla
  5. Drop by heaping spoon-fulls onto waxed paper
  6. Let set, and enjoy!
