No Bake Cookies Are Easy To Make!

My junior year of high school, my favorite class was home economics.  Cooking in the industrial kitchen was fun and I loved the whole series.  It’s where I learned how to make No Bake Cookies for the first time.

I remember taking the recipe home and making them at least every other week until school was over.  I loved how easy they were to make and my family really liked them.

Years later I had forgotten about them until I saw a blogger friend post her recipe for them.  I went to make them that same day only to discover I didn’t have any cocoa powder.

I thought I could get away without adding the chocolate, but they didn’t turn out so well.  It did spark the idea to make No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies and I worked on the recipe for a while.

When I got full approval from my pickiest eater, my 4 year old son at the time, I knew I had created the perfect version.  He even asked to help me make the next batch.

That’s why I love these cookies so much!  I always have the ingredients on hand and it comes together in under 10 minutes.  If you have little helpers in the kitchen they can add in the few ingredients it takes to make them.

You can certainly use a large spoon to drop these cookies onto a parchment lined baking sheet, but I really like to use a Cookie Scoop.  It makes the cookies even in shape and is super easy to use.

All those years back in high school, I never thought a version of my favorite cookie recipe would become my family’s favorite today.
