A Valentine's Day Treat For All My Readers

Opening our recipe blog - and putting together a cookbook has meant that I have dug deep into my recipe box. I found this gem and can't believe I haven't made it in ages. It is a to-die-for recipe and my gift for you on Valentine's Day!

Swedish No Bake Cookies

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
3 Tablespoons Cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening (not butter)

Mix ingredients together and bring to a boil. Heat thoroughly but do not overcook.
Remove from heat and add:

3 cups of quick oatmeal
1/2 cup nuts, optional
1 cup coconut, optional
1 teaspoon vanilla

Drop mixture by spoonfuls onto waxed paper until set and cool.
