So I think (fingers crossed) Spring is finally here. The weather was gorgeous today. I opened all the windows, lit my new fruity summer Yankee Candles and smiled 🙂 I knew I had to post something today but had nothing planned or in reserves…whoops. I was going to post yesterday but the Irish Soda Bread I made was horrible. Horrible!!! I swear. It was the most vile thing I ever tasted. Not sure what I did wrong but next time I’m going to go with a different recipe. Now back to this Spring day. I wasn’t going to ruin it by slaving away in the kitchen all day so I decided to make a childhood favorite….no-bake cookies.  What is not to love about these little gems? They have an almost fudgy texture and are held together by delicious oats…yum!  Enjoy!!!

These sounded great, but the sugar remained grainy. Did I not wait long enough with the saucepan step?
