Beat The Summer Heat With These Cookies

Made some delicious batch of cookies with no baking intended.They are simple to make and great for beginner bakers to try out. Its has simple ingredients and measurements, with very little mess to clean up. Its a kid friendly recipe, as long as the cookie dough/batter is cooled enough so no little ones get hot hands if they help out measuring the cookie dough. These are a children cookie favorite because there unique and fun to make. There are deliciously rich and chocolaty with a chewy texture of the oatmeal. 

These cookies are great to make in hot summer months where no one want to have the oven running at all.Well these are made with no oven in use and only chilling  is involved to bind these cookies There are a cheap, easy way to have fun in the kitchen and create something delicious.

So try it out yourself!
