No Bake Cookies

"I am still convinced that a good, simple, homemade cookie is preferable to all the store-bought cookies one can find."
James Beard

Lauren and I wanted something sweet today but we didn't want to spend a lot of time or make a lot of mess. She was putting together a tuna casserole for dinner and I was batch cooking chicken. We remembered how good these no bake cookies were when her friend spent the night (thanks for the idea, Raven!) so we had a batch scooped into rows on the counter in minutes!
