A No-Bake Cookie
These are hot off the press. Err, cold out of the fridge?
What I’m trying to say is, I just made them. Please ignore the fact that it’s not even 10 AM where I am and I’m already eating cookies. It’s going to be a fabulous day.
I’d had about enough of the oven, what with my Oreo malfunction and all, so I figured today was as good a day as any to delve into the world of no-bake cookies. Plus “no-bake” usually means there’s sticky ingredients involved. Sticky is one of my favorite food groups, you know.
I used this recipe and although I’ll be the first to admit mine don’t like quite as picture perfect, I thought they turned out really good.
It calls for graham crackers. Man, how I have missed graham crackers.
And now I have almost an entire box left. Perfect.
Bring on the smores.
This is my “backup peanut butter.” You know, for when you unexpectedly run out of crunchy. Like you don’t have a backup jar, too.
I’m sure there’s fancier ways to crumble graham crackers, but I just used my hands.
And then I got to those sticky ingredients.
Graham crackers, peanut butter and maple syrup?
I made these before breakfast and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t seriously contemplate just making a second bowl of grahams, pb and maple for myself.
And I must say, knowing that there was no baking and therefore no chance of these going from perfectly fine dough to oven-made mess was pretty awesome.
I guess I’m still a little shaken up about those Oreos!
Hmmm, they’re missing something.
And then this happened.
