    Northern Cook's Note:

    This is a very easy, no-bake Christmas cookie recipe. It makes a festive addition to a Christmas cookie assortment. This recipe was originally my Grandmother's and I hope you enjoy. These cookies always bring back fond memories for me of spending Christmas at Grandma's.

      I found this recipe when my daughter was young and it was one of our Christmas traditions to make these each year. Last year, I taught my granddaughter to make them for our family Christmas celebration. Very good and a nice switch from Rice Krispies Treats.

      This is a great recipe! My mother in law makes it for the kids every year...even for the "big kids" because we love them too! Thanks for posting...if she quits making them, I'll know where to go for the recipe. :)
