This is a recipe from my mother in-law, who enjoys and love cooking so much!
When my mother in-law, April, makes this no bake cookies, she always shares her lovely childhood story about this no bake cookies…
She remembers she and her sisters coming after school and starving as death, looking for something to eat.
They had to hurry because they had to make something, eat it and clean up before their parents coming back home from work,
so they can act like nothing happened… lol!
“We will eat it even before settle, just scooping out from the pot.” She says, “We didn’t even have time to let it settle but sometimes we preferred to eat it when it’s soften!”
Hungry teenagers… Your parents weren’t exceptions. lol!
Hope you guys can create new lovely story with this recipe.
