Book Description

Flavors worth splurging for with little effort. Readily available ingredients. Perfect results time and again. These are the principles behind No Bake Cookies.

It may be a surprise to learn that some of the best-tasting cookies and bars can be made without turning on the oven. No magic is involved, just a few time-honored techniques for producing irresistible goodies while the kitchen-not to mention the cook-remains cool. With an assortment of cereals, crushed graham crackers, cookie crumbs, butter, nut butters, cream cheese, and chocolate (and some delicious options for adding flavor such as dried fruits, nuts, toffee, vanilla, coffee, spices, and more), no bake cookies are a matter of mere minutes in the making.

The recipes in No Bake Cookies are a boon for busy home cooks with a penchant for sweet treats. They make "first time" cooking fun for kids, too. Even the youngest of children can help with measuring and stirring the ingredients while Mom, Dad, or big brother handle more demanding tasks such as chopping nuts and melting butter on the stovetop.

Most people are familiar with Rice Crispy treats, peanut butter bars, and chocolate-oatmeal no-bakes. No Bake Cookies expands the horizon with these mouth-watering treats:

  • Maple Praline Drop Cookies
  • S'Mores Clusters
  • Quick Caramel Delightfuls
  • Mixed Fruit
  • Seed & Nut Energy Bars
  • PB&J Bites
  • Maui-Wowie Macadamia Bars
  • Irish Creamy Mousse Bars
  • Key Lime Squares
  • Butterscotch Pudding Bars
  • Blackberry Mascarpone Bars
  • And dozens more!

Whether one is looking for a fun-time treat for the kids, or a healthy snack for the lunchbox, a dreamy chocolate indulgence, or a creamy-cool summery icebox bar, a recipe from No Bake Cookies cookbook always fits the bill.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! get ready to (no-) bake up up a storm! June 18, 2006
This is such NEAT BOOK! My 8-year-old and 6-year-old are every bit as excited about it as I am. I could not get over the variety of flavors and options in here--all you favorites, but mostly entirely new ideas. We have tried 4 recipes so far, all perfect (Rocky Road Drops, White Chocolate, Coconut & Lime Cookies, Caramel Mallow Goodies, and the Karma Krunch Bars). So yummy, and the girls helped with all of them. I think it took us about 15 minutes total to make each batch in its entirety, if that much time--easy! We are going to be using this all summer long and then throughout the school year. Great for kids, great for adults, lots of fun, delicious cookies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Cookbook for So Many Reasons July 24, 2006
Just got this last week and am drooling my way through it. Made 2 batches of bars (peanut butterscotch bars with chocolate topping and cappuccino bars) for a work party and people inhaled them. Easy recipes, great introduction, incredible variety of recipes (even some healthy ones that I plan to make for lunch boxes)--a winner in every sense.

5.0 out of 5 stars I recommend it to all! August 24, 2006
Reviewed by Kelli Glesige for Reader Views (8/06)

If you are like me and try to keep the cookie monsters in your house at bay, even on hot summer days, you must get a copy of "No-Bake Cookies." Without heating up your kitchen, you can make special treats for your family and friends, and they will love you for it. "No-Bake Cookies" would also be great for those who are too busy to bake, for most of the treats included here go together quickly and easily. The included recipes would also be terrific when the kids want to help out in the kitchen. Several of the steps are well suited for a younger child to handle, leaving only a few advanced steps to an older child or adult. With the oven off, most parents will feel more at ease when the youngsters are helping. And even better, the results deliver a fairly consistent and excellent product if all directions are read and followed. A section is included on selecting the proper ingredients to achieve the best results.

Most of Saulsbury's no-bake cookies are only a matter of minutes in the making. The results are big on taste and little on effort. All the required ingredients are readily available at the grocery and common to most. There should be something for everyone with icebox bars, simple drop cookies, shaped cookies and bar cookies, as well as the well-known cereal bars.

Most cooks are familiar with a few common no-bake cookies such as rice crispy treats and chocolate-oatmeal cookies, but SO MUCH more is included here. And once you see the variety of ingredients Camille Saulsbury uses, you will likely come up with your own variations. A big surprise for me was the inclusion of three packages of ramen noodles in Orange Cream Clusters. Interesting!

There are so many great, easy, and unique recipes here. There is way more to no bake than the traditional ones with oatmeal and peanut butter. Definitely check this out.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Bake Cookies April 21, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I do admit, I like this book, but it can take a little longer if the oven isn't used. I did make a peanut butter bar with chocolate on top and it was good. I admit it was crumbly so I will add a little more butter or something to it to make it stick together better. Can't wait to try more recipes.
