I added 1/2 cup of applesauce instead of the butter, and the cookies turned out just the same.....but a little healthier!!



So yummy! We both ate them all up in 2 days. Only thing different that we did was omit the peanuts and put a tablespoon of peanut butter instead. :) I am going to make these again TONIGHT!



These have always been my favorite cookies, though I know them as 'No Bake Cookies' and usually omit the coconut and peanuts and use a tsp of vanilla extract. A tip for people who find the cookies too crumbly, or too gooey, it's very important that you only let the wet ingredients boil for one minute (minute starts when it comes to a boil) and wait a bit before adding the dry ingredients. Move the wet ingredients off the burner and let it simmer down until it's no longer bubbling, add the ingredients then and you should get well set cookies. If you wait too long they will turn to powder before you can get them into drop cookies!
