Apple Crisp No-Bake Cookies
What the heck is up with today!?
It is a wintery mix of grossness outside and I’m OVER IT
Seriously, yesterday I was at the park all day with my little dude
It was 68 degrees and SUNNY, yeesh
I am so ready for it to be warm outside and STAY that way
The only good thing that comes from it being gross outside is that I am stuck inside forced to bake my little heart out, and by forced I mean totally obsessed with mixer and all things that are filled with sugar :)
These yummy treats are super easy and quick to whip up. I’m pretty sure these took me all of 5 minutes.
Apple crisp is so stinkin delicious but I don’t always need to whip up a whole dish of it (who has that kind of time anyways!?). These little bite-sized versions are perfect and a great on-to-go snack when I have those sweet cravings or when I’m at home and have a sweet craving or when I’m sleeping and wake up with a sweet craving or about anytime of day I have a sweet craving.
I was actually introduced to the “no-bake” cookie by my husband. Yep…I went 20+ years of not ever knowing what a no-bake cookie was (yes I survived). The idea of a cookie that you don’t bake really was hard for me to grasp. I really didn’t want to give in and call it a cookie. My world was shattered!
But I have given in and come to love no-bake cookies and all the varieties you can create. I hope to share with you a few different ones in the coming weeks. What are you favorite no-bake cookies? Have you always known what no-bake cookies are?
