Shower Recipe Cards – Haystacks

If you can melt butter, you can make these cookies!  I’m going to call them cookies because I’m not all that sure what else to call them.

They are the easiest cookie ever!  No oven was turned on for the making of these cookies (again not sure what to call them).
I had to do an edit on this post because I thought this was my aunts recipe but its not. It’s Dan’s aunts recipe!  He came home from work and knew the difference right away. After that I went through the recipe box to fine my aunts recipe. So I’ll have to make those next week. The battle of aunts haystacks/macaroons!  It could get ugly people!!
3C oatmeal
1C coconut
6T coca powder 
1/2C butter
1/2C milk
1C sugar
1t vanilla 
Stir together oatmeal, coconut and coca powder.
In a sauce pan melt together butter, milk and sugar. Bring to a boil, boil for one minute and stand back and add the vanilla.
Then mix the dry and wet ingredients together. Scoop and place on wax paper.
Sorry I didn’t take progress pictures. It was all just happening so fast!
I used my teaspoon cookie scoop and got 56 cookies. 



  1. I am pretty sure this is your aunt's recipe-lol. Either way it is a good one!

    • The recipes are so similar that I couldn't tell the difference either! The ingredients are the same it's just the way they are put together. It's one of my favs as well!
