No bake cookies are so great for hot days when you don’t want to use an oven, or just days where you want a sweet treat but don’t feel like actually baking. I love the chocolate version of these and I thought it would be fun to make a purely pb version. These came out a bit too vanilla-y tasting so I tweaked the recipe a bit below to fix that for next time. I also just made a half batch which made about a dozen cookies and that is what I’m listing below. I just love the texture of these cookies. Very addictive! I kept breaking off little pieces. Sorry for so many sweet treats lately, we just got back from Disney World and I haven’t been cooking much in the past couple of weeks. I do have some entree & side dishes lined up for you guys in the next couple of weeks though! Be on the lookout for a Disney post later this week.
