OATMEAL-FUDGE - No-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies

     This may be my all-time favorite cookie recipe.  I don't
     remember where I got this particular version of the recipe
     but I remember my great-aunt making these cookies for us as

INGREDIENTS (3 dozen cookies)
     3 cups    rolled oats
     1 tsp     vanilla extract
     1 cup     chopped nuts, (optional)
     2 cups    granulated sugar
     1/2 cup   cocoa powder
     1/2 cup   evaporated milk
     1/4 lb    butter

          (1)  Combine oats, vanilla and nuts in a bowl and set

          (2)  Combine sugar, cocoa and evaporated milk in a
               heavy, 2-quart sauce pan.

          (3)  Bring to a full rolling boil over medium high
               heat, STIRRING CONSTANTLY.  Let boil, while stir-
               ring, for 2 minutes.

          (4)  Remove pan from heat and add the butter.  Stir
               until butter is melted and incorporated.

          (5)  Quickly add oat mixture to pan and stir until well

          (6)  Drop by the spoonful onto waxed paper.  Let cool
               for 2 hours to set.

     My great-aunt never put nuts in these cookies.  I like nuts
     but I find that they get lost in the recipe.

     If you want the oats to be less prominent, use quick-cooking
     oats.  They will fall apart somewhat in the final mixing.

     A heavy sauce pan makes burning the fudge less likely but
     stir, stir, stir, anyway.

     The cooking time at boil is important.  Cooked too little
     the cookies will not set; too much and they start to harden
     before you get them out of the pan.

     These cookies are better the next day, if there are any

     Difficulty: easy to moderate.  Time: 20 minutes preparation
     and cooking, 2 hours cooling.  Precision: measure the
     ingredients, watch the cooking time.
