Mom's No Bake Cookies

Ready in 1 hour

This is the best recipe for no bake cookies I have ever tried. It's great with or without the nuts and coconut!

"I made these quick and easy cookies with my nieces. They turned out wonderfully and were ready to eat in about an hour. The girls followed the recipe as written but did omit the optional nuts and coconut. Also, after dropping them onto the wax paper lined sheets, they used the back of a spoon to smooth the mounds out a bit, flattening them into more of a cookie shape (see photo). The girls loved them!"

Great recipe! I've made them with and without the coconut, used crunchy peanut butter. Both great! Kids love them as we'll as adults

Its a really easy recipe to make, a no brainer if you need something quick. I put them in the fridge to speed up the hardening time.
