Number Two on the Christmas Cookie Hit Parade!!! Not only is this one of the most popular cookies I make at Christmas, it is SUPER EASY. And, YOU deserve a break. The holidays sneak up on all of us and there are more things to do than there are hours in the day. So, thankfully, the hardest part of making these NO-BAKE COOKIES is making sure you have the ingredients in your pantry.
I certainly don’t claim to having created this recipe and I’d love to give credit where credit is due, but I just don’t know who came up with it. My mom, Mary Frances, gave me this recipe years ago. My mother happens to live in the city where my oldest son went to college and she made sure that he and his roommates were well fed. My son put his order in, and this cookie was almost always on the list, and my mom delivered. That could explain why on parent’s weekend, when my mom and I visited my son at college, his entire fraternity rushed to give my mom a big hug and kiss. She is a sweetheart.
And I need to show you how I like to challenge myself. Let’s use a bowl that’s too small for the job and then let’s continue to struggle stirring this and making a big mess when all the ‘stuff’ jumps over the side of the bowl onto the counter. Do this every time you make these. I might learn some day!!!
