This recipe is one of the first I ever learned to make. My mom would let me help her make them while I stood on a chair in our kitchen. Great comfort food.

I was looking for different Christmas cookies to make and wanted to try this bcz it looked easy and was no bake. I followed the recipe exactly, except using Sucanat instead of white sugar. I poured it out onto parchment paper and let it cool. However, it is not hardening up. I have to eat it with a fork. It tastes good, but not really a "cookie".

I love these cookies too. Whenever I make these, they vanish within seconds from the cookie plate. I use 1 cup of peanut butter, 1 tsp. of vanilla essence and 5 tbsps. of cocoa powder (heaped) in addition to all the other above-mentioned ingredients. This recipe is a sure 'keeper'!
