Feature: Preacher Cookies – THE Classic No Bake Cookie Recipe

Image: The Cookie Elf

This classic No Bake Cookie Recipe is the granddaddy of all no bakes.

If you’re from the southeast (or more specifically Appalachia), you call them Preacher Cookies. You could put them together in just a few minutes and be ready to serve them in the time you spotted the preacher coming up the mountain until the moment he knocked at your door.

If you’re from Texas, you may call them Poodgies (don’t know why). If you live on a farm, you may call them Cow Patties (no explanation needed.)

They’re simple. They’re quick. They call for basic ingredients you have in your cupboard right now.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Chilling time (optional): 15-30 minutes
Makes about 16-25 bars or drop cookies
