    It's too hot to think of turning on the oven .... yet I need some cookies for tomorrow.

    So, I'm wondering if any of you lovelies have a recipe to share for Unbaked Cookies that won't melt away if not kept in the frig?

    I'm thinking "cookies" and not squares.

    Please? and Thanks!!!!!

    Yes definitely for an adult ... though they need to be out-of-frig friendly and any time I've made truffles they somewhat melted with a little warmth, even in normal weather.

    no bars - shoot

    rice krispie bars are one of my very favorite treats

    NO peanut butter, NO chocolate frosting -

    JUST the "classic" bars

    Mom used to make "wreaths" out of corn flakes - basically green coloring added to the marshmallow stuff and corn flakes instead of rice krispies - with the little cinnamon candies for the holly berries.

    Hope you find something that works for you.

    The only things I can think of might be sticky.

    Looks like quite a few things turn up if one googles "no bake cookies"

    I'm thinking like you ... unbakeds turn sticky. Chocolate and peanut butter melt. Also, the rice krispie type with the humidity here, lose their crisp and go rubbery.

    Any I've found so far, are versions of the chocolate oatmeal drops ... and they go very melty with the heat.



    MoonWorks ... those vanilla orange ones look good, though I don't have 5 of the ingredients!!! :)

    These require baking - but only for 10 min or so. They're really easy and taste good.

    Graham cookie bars: (not your typical bar cookie - I know you said no bars!)

    24 graham crackers (approx)
    2 sticks butter
    1/2 c sugar
    1 cup chopped walnuts
    1 tsp vanilla

    Grease sides and bottom of cookie sheets. place crackers on bottom.

    Melt butter and add sugar to pan and boil for 2 min. Add nuts and vanilla. Spoon over crackers.

    Bake 350 for 10 min or until brown. Remove from sheet at once.

    Yes, they are good. To make them a little prettier add some chopped cherries and or coconut! Always a hit!! ... maybe because they have a gazillion calories?

    That looks like a good recipe to try sometime, though not the cookies I need this time.

    And not sure what the pudding cups are about? Do you have a recipe using them?

    I would go for microwave cookies, something like a shortbread that doesn't need to get brown and crusty.

    I put this on this site some time ago. They are still lovely. They are easy to make and everyone loves them.
    -------------------------------
    I would like to give credit to Joanne Fluke's book==Cream Puff Murder, which has so many lovely recipes in it that are truly unique!!
    ========================================

    Cheeseburger Mini-Cookies=Men and kids love these. Ladies think they are adorable!! Good also for tea parties.

    For the buns===12 ounce box vanilla wafers (I use Nilla Wafers) second box to make sure enough are not crumbled.

    For the hamburger patties=about 3 dozen slightly larger round chocolate-covered cookies (I used 2 packages of Keebler's Fudge Shop Grasshoppers Cookies==18 cookies to the box.

    For the shredded lettuce
    1 half cup shredded coconut (pack it down tightly
    before measuring it ) green food coloring (I make a lot more, it keeps nicely in a giant ZipLoc baggie.

    ++For the cheese and the ketchup
    ++1/2 cup salted butter (1 stick) at room temp
    ++1/4 cup milk (2 ounces)
    ++1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    ++16 ounces (1 pound) box powdered sugar (this is about
    ++3 1/2 cups)
    Yellow AND Red food coloring
    (Note..all with the ++ A very good substitute can be 2 cans of plain white frosting colored Red and White. Takes a little longer to set firm but saves work.

    For the top of the bun
    1/4 cup sesame seeds
    1 egg white---or rub honey on top.

    Prepare your :"shredded lettuce" first. It will take time to air dry. Dump your coconut into a large Ziploc bag. Hold the bag open and drop in 3 drops of green food coloring. Close it tightly and shake, shake and shake it till the color is evenly distributed. Then if it is not quite the color of lettuce, add more green food coloring a few drops at a time until you decide it is the color of lettuce.

    Line a cookie sheet with wax paper and dump the coconut onto it. Spread it out with a spoon as evenly as possible. Let it sit out on the counter (or on top of the fridge if you have nosey cats) till dry, stirring it ever so often.

    Once the coconut is dry, it is time to assemble your cookies.

    Line another cookie sheet with wax paper. Lay out 40 vanilla wafers, rounded side up.

    Frosting
    In the bowl of a stand mixer, or simply in a medium-size mixing bowl, combine the milk,butter, vanilla extract and powdered sugar, If you're using a stand mixer, beat on LOW for 2 minutes. If you're using a handheld mixer, beat on LOW for 3 minutes. If you're mixing by hand, use a wooden spoon and beat like crazy for 4 minutes, or until the frosting is smooth, with no lumps. (This is the best one, but easier and quicker is using commercial cans of frosting.)

    Divide the frosting into 2 bowls.

    Into the one put 3 drops of yellow food coloring. Mix this well, and if it is not a bright yellow, add more food coloring. This will be your "melting cheese" on the cheeseburgers.

    In the other bowl add the red food coloring until it is the color of "Ketchup".

    With a rubber spatula put a layer of RED frosting on each rounded side of the wafers. Pile it up around the rims of the wafers so it will form the flat beds for the "hamburgers."

    Place a chocolate-covered cookie, face up, on top of the red frosting on the wafer. Press the chocolate-covered cookie down slightly so it'll stick to the red frosting and let some run out so it can be seen.

    Frost the top of the chocolate-covered cookie with the YELLOW frosting. Use just a bit too much so it'll drip over the sides of the "hamburger" like melted cheese. (++Here I just frost the underside of the top cookie and mash it down on the "green lettuce, works easier that way for me++)

    Sprinkle on some of the green coconut "lettuce." It'll look more realistic if you let a few strands stick out on the sides.

    Clamp on the second vanilla wafer, rounded side up. Now your Mini Cheeseburger Cookie is complete, except for the sesame seeds on the bun.

    Repeat until you run out of "buns" or "hamburgers."

    Whip up the egg white in a small bowl. Use a pastry brush to brush the tops of the vanilla wafers. Sprinkle on a few sesame seeds, and you're finished. Or use a little bit of honey if anyone is allergic to eggs.

    Let the cookies dry thoroughly. Once dry, they will keep just fine in a loosely covered container until it's time to serve them.

    (I have no idea of how they will freeze, but my guess is that they will do that quite well. I never have any left to try. )

    Do you have a microwave? You can melt chocolate and coat chow-mein noodles with it for little haystacks.

    1/2 cup cocoa powder
    1/2 cup milk
    Bring to boil and let bubble for one minute.
    Take off fire and add 3 cups quick oats, 1/2 cup peanut butter and 1 tsp vanilla;.
    Mix up good and drop by spoonfuls on waxed paper to cool.
    These keep well and do not need refrigeration.

    When I saw the topic I thought it was about the best tasting cookie dough. After all, raw cookie dough calories don't count! Just like broken cookie crumbs.

    If you have a toaster oven, take it outside and bake there. Bugs won't mess with it. I cook dinner in the summer in ours.
