Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookie Bars

For some reason I have trouble making no-bake cookies. They usually don't set up and we end up having to eat them with spoons. However, this recipe turned out just fine. These are a good twist on the traditional cookies in that they are all peanut butter with no cocoa. It's nice to just pour them into the pan and not have to drop them out like cookies. For this recipe, it helps to have the peanut butter measured out and ready to go and the oats standing by with a measuring cup, because you will want to be quick once it is time to add them.
Peanut Butter No-Bake Bars
1/4 c. butter
2 c. sugar
1/2 c. milk
1 c. peanut butter
3 c. oats
Spray an 8 x 8 pan with Pam. In a heavy saucepan, cook the butter, sugar and milk until it comes to a boil. Make sure to stir frequently, because this can burn easily. After it comes to a boil, set your timer for 2 minutes and keep stirring. After 2 minutes, add in the peanut butter and mix until melted. Then mix in the oats. Pour into your pan. Let it harden and cut into squares.
