It’s Cookie Baking time!
Anyone else been baking up a storm like I have been? It seems like I’m pulling out a stick of butter every night so that I have my 1/2 cup softened butter all ready for the next day’s cookie recipe. 😉 Fortunately, the recipe I’m sharing today does call for 1/2 cup of butter, BUT it doesn’t need to be softened. In fact, this recipe is for No Bake Cookies and they are so simple! They take 10 minutes to make (start to finish) and result in a super delicious and simple treat perfect for your upcoming Cookie Exchange.
I admit growing up I wasn’t the biggest fan of No Bake Cookies, but that’s mostly because I really only liked the cookies with M&Ms, Sprinkles or frosting on top, but I love these now. It’s especially nice to have on hand in the summer months when you want a nice, homemade treat that doesn’t require turning on the oven. 😉
I definitely recommend try this recipe stat. I think you’ll love it!
