There is nothing more wonderful than having a recipe for cookies here in Florida, where it gets so hot and you don't have to heat up the house with the oven. I do love these cookies.

This is a perfect recipe for summertime, when you want cookies but you don't want to be running a hot oven! Great recipe!

Thanks for participating in my Five Ingredient Friday recipe exchange.

And thanks for helping to spread the word to others!

No bakes are the best! My hubby loves them with peanut butter. I make them for him all thetime.
