Day: 18 No Bake Cookies

We went by 3 places today. One of which was another student's place. We didn't realize they lived there, but it's ok because we still got to deliver to people we don't know. One man we went to didn't accept the cookies, he said he just ate and was full. The next place was an old lady, she said she fractured her hip just last week. She eats cookies though and accepted them. Both her and the man we visited had been living in their places for about 30 years. The lady asked if we had a black and white cat, which we did but went missing almost a year ago. She said he used to come up and sit on her lap when she was on the porch. I'm surprised she remembered him.
Ok, another no bake recipe.These cookies are so so easy and they taste pretty good! That is, if you like oatmeal because there's a lot of it. It only takes about 5-10 min. to make these. I just put them in the freezer for 10-15 until they're firm instead of waiting an hour. So start to finish in 20 min. you're done and eating!
*I made 1/2 the recipe and ended up with about 12 cookies

  1. I do certainly enjoy making no-bake cookie recipes. I took yours down for a try at a later time. I will however have to tone down the sugar content...might be a liitle to sweet for what I'm used to. I found your blog to be fun.
    Thanks for sharing and flavourful wishes, Claudia
