I'm a No-Bake Cookie Snob

Yes, I am a No-Bake Cookie snob, at least according to my husband.  
He loves them and he jokes that they are just "too beneath me to make".  
Yes, I do aspire to try more difficult, elaborate cookies while I channel my Inner Martha.  But today I thought we would give him a treat.

I used the recipe for No-Bake Cookies from which is a GREAT recipe site, if you haven't already joined them!
Jesse and I made them together and that also made it fun.  I let him pour in the ingredients. I took care of stirring while boiling on the stove and then let him mix in the final ingredients on the counter.  He is old enough and done this enough to know not to touch a hot pan.  Then he used the cookie scoop and dropped them onto the wax paper.
The jury is still out if these would make to a Christmas Cookie party platter by me, but since my hubby loves them, it was time to indulge him..after all, I am embarrassed to say, this is the first time I have made them for him in the 7 years {almost in 2 weeks} we have been married.  
Actually, this may be the first time I have actually made them at all.   
I grew up baking but my mom tends to make the more difficult recipes, too. 
Like mother, like daughter. :)
 He should be home soon for the approving nod but I think they are pretty tasty...for No-Bakes. ;)

What is your favorite cookie recipe?

I've never made no-bake cookies because they just seem weird to me. How can it be a cookie if I can't bake it and eat it warm???

When I make cookies from scratch I always make the Toll House recipe. It's perfect every time!
