{in season} No-Bake Cookies

My mom returned from Pennsylvania this week.  She brought home yummy treats from my aunt including a few No-Bake Cookies, which I loved as a kid (along with her date nut rolls).  No-Bake Cookies are a perfect blend of chocolate, peanut butter and rolled oats and as the name implies, require no baking.  Enjoyed with a cold glass of milk, they are a perfect summer treat.  I'm off to make a batch with my girls!
