Cookie Recipes using evaporated milk

Today I made one of my sons all time favorite things. Chocolate No Bake Cookies. He absolutely loves them. I have hard time making these cookies, for some reason the recipe I have been using I could never get the cookies to set up correctly.

Everyone says I don't let the mixture boil long enough but i followed it exactly right and it's still was mess. I found yet another recipe online so I thought I would give it a shot.

I wanted to surprise my son with the cookies since the last time the results were so disappointing. I followed the recipe to the "T", well except I used evaporated milk instead of regular milk.

I have a lot of cans of the evaporated milk that needed to be used, But that was the only change in the recipe i made. I am happy to say they turned out perfectly I was pretty proud of myself. Travis was so surprised to see those cookies cooling on the counter, he said mom you did it!

I told my son I remember eating these cookies a long time ago so its not a new thing. He told me Geez mom it must be an old recipe cause that was the olden days. Stinker!!! I told him that a lot of people used to make these cookies and refer to them in the so called olden days as Preacher Cookies.They called them preacher cookies, because these cookies could be prepared quickly, when a housewife looked out the window and saw the preacher riding up the mountain on his horse, the cookies would be cooled and almost done by the time he arrived. So, yes it's really a old recipe. Probably a lot older than he and I will ever know. But it's definitely still a goodie.

add sugar,
Milkand cocoa powder or unsweetened chocolate squares.
Let mixture come to a rolling boil. Boil for exactly 1 minute and 15 seconds. (Important Step) If you don't boil the chocolate mixture for the full time the cookies will not set up. If you boil them to long they will get dry and crumbly.

let the cookies sit on the counter until they have hardened and set up.
