A Humdinger of a Cookie (This ones for you Suzi)

It's may not officially be Summer yet but It is definitely close around here. I know some of you are already having 100 degree weather. Whew!
Who wants to heat their kitchen in HOT HOT weather? Not me! So today I am offering up a Humdinger of a cookie that is No-Bake. Now this is a bit of a Holiday thing but who cares? When you are craving a cookie in 100 degree weather, this one will fit the bill.

So whip up a batch and get outta that kitchen y'all. It's Summer Time!
PS. I will be adding more no bake cookies for the Summer.

Melt butter, add sugar,dates,nuts and salt. Cook for 8 minutes over medium heat. (Don't over cook or they will be glazed) Remove from heat and add rice krispies and vanilla. Mix well with wooden spoon. When cool enough to touch roll into 1 inch balls and then roll in confectioners sugar.
Tada! A Quick No Bake Treat! Enjoy!


  1. This is only the 2nd "no bake" cookie recipe that I've ever come across...can't wait to try them! My son will love the rice krispies!

  2. Those sound quiet delish! I will wait for Suzi to cook some so that I can steal them from her. Teeheehee...

  3. I don't have dates, so I will improvise with some apricots. Can't wait to give them a try!

  4. Hmm no bake cookies....only have tried the chocolate one with the oatmeal....might have to give this one a go! Thanks Cookie Girl!

  5. Oh a cookie with rice krispies, a must try. They sound delicious!

  6. Great easy-looking recipe for those hot days! What a fabulous idea, Cookie Girl.

  7. Can i microwave the butter? :) xo

  8. Yoo hoo!!! CG, I posted your Apron Goddess write up for our enjoyment. :) Hope you like it! ;)

  9. These are the best no bake cookies ever! i made them last year for christmas, and everyone loved them. I am actually making them tomorrow night for a christmas gathering!

  10. My late grandmother used to make these. She rolled them into small little crescent shapes. They were divine... can't wait to try this recipe. Unfortunately as a child, I didn't have the appreciation to know to ask for her recipes. Sure I'm not the first to let those precious gems slip by. Thank you for your recipe.

  11. We actually CALL these Humdingers in my family, is that where your play on words comes from? These are a Christmas favorite around here!
