Cherry No-Bake Cookies
Total TimePrep: 30 min. + chilling
Makesabout 5-1/2 dozen
Cherries aren't on the ingredient list. Marachino? How much should be used? Thanks.
The photo makes them look like meatballs!
I add a half cup coconut shredded. And used chunky peanut butter. But you can leave out peanut butter.
The ingredients and the recipe do not match...this is supposed to be a cherry no bake cookie, but the instructions say to mix peanut butter in? Can someone help as I'd really like to make the cherry cookies! Both versions sound great by the way.
Maraschino cherries are full of high fructose corn syrup! I used healthy fresh blueberries instead
Would it be possible to make with something else besides peanut butter?
These are delicious! The only other no bake cookies I've tried have always had chocolate and peanut butter, but nothing else to make them stand out. But these definitely stand out. :) They actually taste a lot like the cherry flavor Mountain candy bars!
UPDATE: I have made these several times with "sugar"
I made some substitutions: I used Sunbutter, and omitted the almond extract to make the cookies nut-allergy safe. They are slightly gooey-er, probably the consistency of the Sunbutter, but they are very tasty! When I'm not "baking" for kids that aren't mine, I'm going to try it the original way and I'm really excited to try them that way, too!
