LC No-Bake Cookies (pics inside)
These are those yummy, ugly peanut butter cookies typically made with oats.
Here's my version:
Lc No-Bake Cookies
1 cup unsweetened coconut (I used finely shredded)
2 1/2 cups pecan pieces (not too finely chopped)
1 stick Unsalted Butter
1 cup Peanut Butter
1/2 packet of Splenda Quick Pack (OR 1/2 cup of sugar equivalent)
(I did not have chocolate on hand but will use an 8 oz bag of SF Chips for the next time.)
Variation: 1/2 cup PB instead of 1 cup, and an 8 oz. bag of SF chocolate chips.
(just melt the chips in with the PB and the butter.)
Melt Butter and Peanut Butter together until smooth. Turn off the heat and stir in the splenda. Pour over Nuts and coconut, and mix well. Drop on Wax paper in globs and refridgerate until set.
I am keeping mine in the fridge(I do not have AC), but I would imagine if you used chocolate they may set up just fine at room temp (chocolate would help firm them up) But these were Awesome!!! I will definitely be making them again with chocolate when my order comes in. This recipe makes a good amount of cookes, and these are very rich.
These pics are a batch made without the chocolate:
They have the texture of pecan pralines.
