No Bake Cookies

Everybody likes no bake cookies, right?  They don’t look that great but they sure do taste good!   When I was younger we were only served these cookies at school lunches.  I was happy when I found a recipe for them and have been making them for years…
At Easter time I shape them like a bird nest and put jelly beans in them.  You can also dump in a pan and cut into squares instead of dropping by spoonfuls on wax paper or foil.
