We refer to these cookies as my dad’s magic cookies. He makes them PERFECTLY! Seriously. They are the BEST! The best dough ever, INCREDIBLE warm, and still totally addicted the next day! Be sure to have milk on hand when you bake them!

My sister started making these cookies in college, and the beauty of them is that even a college girl with NO skills can make them well! LOL! Seriously addicting. YUM!
No bake cookies are a family favorite! They don’t last long around here so I don’t make them too often.
I have never seen these made without peanut butter, but they are my favorite cookie.

Haha – and I had never seen them WITH peanut butter until I was out of college! I assume my family made them this way because of my sister’s deadly peanut allergy. I do love no bakes with PB as well. 🙂
