No Bake Cookies – Fudge
Some of the best tasting cookies are not baked.
They take less time to make, save money, as there is no heating the oven up, therefore saving on the power bill, also a cooler kitchen in the summer heat.
I have been making nonbaked cookies for some fifty years, and they soon disappear off the table, “my observation” (quicker than a cooked variety of cakes or sweets).
This easy nonbaked cookie will make life a little easier with baking, for that special treat or even school lunches.
Uncooked Fudge Cookies
You can use any biscuits, it just changes the flavor, wine, malt or even mixed broken biscuits can be a change using the same recipe, also icing lemon, chocolate, or spicy.
Also by changing the essence, you can have many types of fudge that no one would know you are using the same recipe.
Even leaving out the walnuts can add chopped dried cherries, or any other ingredient instead of walnuts.
Just try it you will be surprised with the results.
- 125 grams Butter,
- 125 grams sugar,
- 1 packet 400 grams crushed biscuits,
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence,
- 2 tablespoons cocoa,
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts,
- 1 egg
Melt butter, add sugar and bring to the boil stirring to stop it from catching on and burning.
Remove from heat and add beaten egg, crushed biscuits, cocoa, walnuts.
One method is to press into a greased slice tin, ice and refrigerate, cut when set cut.
Another way is to put spoonfuls of the mixture in paper cups, ice and decorate for an extra special occasion.
No Bake Cookies are a boon for busy home cooks with a penchant for sweet treats. They make “first time” cooking for kids, fun. Even the youngest of children can help with measuring and stirring the ingredients while Mom, handles the more demanding tasks such as chopping nuts and melting butter on the stovetop.
