No-Bake Holly Cookies are an easy Christmas cookie recipe for kids and a colorful addition to a Christmas cookie tray. They are fun to make and set quickly, too, so they are ready fast.

The cookies are a variation of traditional Rice Krispie Treats, but this recipe substitutes corn flakes for rice cereal.

The corn flakes imitate the leaves on a holly branch. Cinnamon candies mimic holly berries.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Set time: 20-30 minutes
Makes about 24-36 depending on how you cut them

Christmas Cookie Baking Tip : Coat Cookie Scoop with Oil

Prevent sticky cookie dough (like the mixture for No-Bake Holly Cookies) from adhering to your cookie scoop or spoon when you coat spoon surfaces with vegetable spray, butter, or shortening.

Lubrication will allow dough to slip more easily from spoon onto the baking sheets.

You may need to re-apply the oil or shortening in between scooping cookies.
