Have you ever heard of no bake cookies? They’re pretty self explanatory, cookies that require no baking before they are ready to enjoy. It’s like getting to lick the bowl without getting scolded by mom.
Generally what makes no bake cookies work is a thick base that requires no eggs. Things like peanut butter, oats or graham crackers typically serve to keep the cookie together without needing to bake.
Here’s a favorite recipe for quick, no bake cookies!
