Problem Solved

So we have been with out an oven for several months now....I do have an oven but there is a part that we need to get it fixed. We've ordered several parts that we thought were the right one but they weren't so I still am without an oven to bake anything...ho-hum!

One of our favorite treats is cookies...and I love to make them! Our favorite cookie has craisins and white chocolate chips in the mix and boy have we been missing them.


I came up with a solution to our cookie woes...I've been making no-bake cookies and decided that adding a few ingredients would make them similar to the ones we love...they were not exactly the same but good enough to pass the "no cookie left" test!

Here's the recipe if you ever find yourself without an oven or in a hurry....
No Bake Cookies...with added ingredients

2 cups sugar(we use turbinado)

1/2 cup butter(use real butter)

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup peanut butter

*Cook above ingredients to boil for one minute.

*Add following:

5 TBLS cocoa powder

3 cups oats or wheat flakes

1 cup chopped nuts(we have used almonds or pecans and like pecans the best)

1 cup craisins or raisins

*Stir until consistency is drop-able from a teaspoon

*Add 1 cup white chocolate chips...these will melt so if they are from the freezer they will not melt as much

Drop by teaspoon fulls onto wax paper and cool. Store in airtight container! Enjoy with milk, tea or coffee...

Thanks for stopping by...ta-ta

So proud of you for finding a creative solution to this unfortunate problem...grrr...I feel for you friend! Have you ever made frog legs? They are simply wonderful and don't require an oven either.

Only three ingredients-
1 bag of chocolate chips
1 bag of butterscotch chips
1 bag of chow mein noodles

You could add peanuts too...melt the chips together in a pan and stir in noodles. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper and cool! Jonah makes these for us. They are dangerous though...very addictive! lol

love you!
