Today, ladies and gentlemen, we’re going to boil some butter and brown sugar, and make cookies out of it. Oh yeah, no-bake cookies
I know. Killer combination, right? (pun totally intended). but look, sometimes we want healthy no-bake cookies, sometimes we want chocolate. Other times we want good ‘ol pecans in a buttery brown sugar base.
And seriously! Who doesn’t love butter and brown sugar?! It’s like a super sweet match straight from heaven.
That makes these cookies awesome, because they’re basically butter and brown sugar mixed with pecans and oatmeal.
Melt. In. Your. Mouth goodness y’all!
I would brag and tell you that I had a hard time keeping the kiddos from gobbling these up, but truth be told, they’re not good taste testers. They like everything. well, anything sweet that is.
But I loved them. And in my next batch, I want to substitute some of the oatmeal for shredded coconut and call them “German Chocolate Cake Icing No-Bake Cookies” …or something like that, because that’s totally what they remind me of. And I’m a total sucker for that coconut-pecan icing. Oh my goodness, don’t get me started!
but I feel like a pig eating that by the spoonful, whereas nobody looks at you twice when you eat two or three of these amazing cookies. Total win!
