HOW LONG ARE NO BAKE COOKIES GOOD FOR?
The great thing about no-bake cookies is they are have a longer shelf life than other baked goods. Once they have fully set, transfer them to an airtight container, with the layers separated by parchment, and they will keep at room temperature or in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
Which oats are best for no bake cookies?
Different recipes will call for different kinds of oats, but to make the best No Bake Cookies, you should use quick cooking oats. Using different kinds of oats will change the texture of the cookies, and they may be more dry than you’d like. As this recipe’s main ingredient, it’s important to get the right kind of oats.
Why are my no-bake cookies too gooey?
If your no-bake cookies turned out a bit too gooey, a common reason for that is because the mixture was not boiled for long enough. Once the mixture begins to boil, set a timer for 5 minutes and still occasionally during this process. It is an important step in the no-bake process, it’s not to be skipped or rushed through.
