No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies

"Quick and easy to put together. Takes longer to measure ingredients than to cook. These freeze well, but be sure to thaw them before trying to eat. I always double the recipe."

  1. So easy and everyone loved them, even my boyfriend who usually dislikes sweets.
  2. These are our family favorite. I have made them over a dozen times. The kids are really happy they can help with these. Its the easiest recipe for great cookies.
  3. I made these for the daycare children today and they absolutely loved them! These are so much better with the rice cereal than with oats! I am glad to finally have a great no-bake cookie recipe that doesn't involve chocolate! Thanks for sharing!

  5. these are great , but instead of rice krispies i used corn flakes (just as good)


I was born and raised in Iowa but married my penpal of 8 years who was a Ky boy. We've been married 32 years. He's retired from the VA Hospital and I am no longer working outside the home because of health problems. I stil love to read, just can't do it as well because of retinopathy in my eyes. I really feel like its been forever since I was last on this site. Looking forward to seeing how many of you I remember and vice versa. P.S. My soul mate passed away from cancer on Nov 19, 2007. His was a short battle, but a courageous one. He was always my biggest fan, especially if I made peanut butter cookies. I miss him lots, but know he's not hurting anymore. I think he would be proud of the fact that I've been able to go on, and I'm still doing some of the things we liked doing together. I would like to remind everyone to tell the people you love, how much you love them everyday, because you just never know when they'll be gone.
