Feature: No Bake Cookie Recipe – The Simple Classic

This classic No Bake Cookie Recipeis 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 - does anyone out there have a clue?). 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

Cookie Baking Tip: What's a Rolling Boil?

Today's No Bake Cookie recipe calls for a rolling boil ... but that doesn't mean you're doing somersaults across the kitchen floor while the butter melts.
