No Bake Cookies

No Bake Cookies are a staple in our household. We make these cookies often and they are always on my Christmas baking list. So of course this cookie appears on my 2012 Christmas Baking Madness list. This cookie is really simple to make however easily screwed up as well. It is important to measure the ingredients out exactly and the amount of humidity around your home greatly affects how well the cookie sets up. With relatively a small amount of ingredients and prep time, this cookie is a winner year round!
