    Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies

    Recipe adapted from I Heart Naptime. I’ve always had great success with Jamielyn’s savory and sweet recipes. What stood out to me with this recipe, was how she used quick oats instead of old fashioned for these no bake cookies. I couldn’t believe how much softer the recipe was with these type of oats!

    Inside Out Cookies

    Recipe adapted from Sally’s Baking Addiction. I have to be honest. I’m not a chocoholic. I love chocolate treats, but I don’t really crave chocolate. That is, until I made this recipe from Sally. Hands down, I can’t say no to these cookies. Every cookie is super soft and fudgy. Days after I make this recipe, they are still just as soft. I usually warm them up for 15 seconds in the microwave the day after I make them, and they taste like I made them that same day. The hardest part of this recipe is letting the batter firm up in the fridge for a few hours. -Mix room temperature butter, white…
