Who doesn’t love a good cookie?! Sure, cupcakes were trending for a bit and then macaroons, but no one can ever replace an amazing homemade cookie which is why I am sharing some of the Best No Bake Cookie Recipes! Memories flood through my mind when thinking about these delicious little treats…leaving them out for Santa, dipping an Oreo in milk with my grandfather and certainly my mother letting me lick the spoon while she baked. Now that I’ve totally romanticized the cookie we must discuss the topic of the best no bake recipes! Why No Bake? Well, it is the least intimidating type of cookie for those of us that are a little more foreign to the kitchen and if you’re going to start, you’ve got to start at the beginning of course! Also, I can’t promise this cookies are calorie free, but I’m not allowed to stop you from telling your friends they are, if only just for the night. đŸ™‚

Stir until combined.Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls into powdered sugar and shape into balls. Let cool at room temperature for 20 minutes, then store covered in refrigerator.
