Eskimo cookies

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pack (12oz) chocolate bits
¼ cup Margarine
¾ cup Evaporated milk
1½ cup Sugar
7 cups Oatmeal; Old fashioned, (NOT QUICK OR INSTANT), up to 8
1 cup Powdered sugar
½ cup Coconut
½ cup Pecans


These cookies are so rich, I only make them once or twice a year (at the holidays). It is a recipe I got from my Grandmother. I don't know where she got it. Also note, I modified my Grandmother's recipe. She used 3 cups of sugar. I've found that 1½ works just fine. I suggest trying the recipe without the optional ingredients first. I don't feel they add anything to the recipe.

In a double boiler, combine first four ingredients. Stir until sugar is completely dissolved and texture is smooth. While mixture is warm, combine with oatmeal-use as much oatmeal as you can coat with the mixture. Roll into balls and then roll in powdered sugar. Store in refrigerator and eat cold.

Note: If you have trouble rolling the balls, allow them to cool some (in the 'fridge is ok). Also, wetting your hands with cold water also helps.

Warning: Everytime you open the 'fridge door, you will want to eat "just one." They can be hazardous to diabetics! Posted to JEWISH-FOOD digest by "CHRISTINE JACKSON" <SHIRAH@...> on Aug 3, 1998, converted by MM_Buster v2.0l.
