    No bake chocolate peanut butter cookies
    Claire Cohen

    This is one of the first recipes I ever made. The secret is to make sure that the sugar is completely dissolved before you add the peanut butter and oatmeal. The cookies are soft and tender, with the best chocolate flavor enhanced by the creamy peanut butter.

    Do you love those chocolate mint Girl Scout Cookies? These fabulously easy cookies taste just like them, but better! And they're big cookies too, so they're more satisfying. This is a really fun recipe to make with your kids.

    Chocolate Peanut Butter Bonbons
    Chocolate Peanut Butter Bonbons. Linda Larsen

    These cookies/candies are an absolute must for Christmas in my family. This last year I forgot to buy dates and didn't make them - and we missed them! Be sure to buy the unchopped dates and chop them yourself. The prechopped type coated in sugar are too dry for the recipe.

    Frosted Graham Cracker Sandwiches
    Frosted Graham Cracker Sandwiches. Linda Larsen

    This old, old recipe is one of the first ones I ever made. We always had these ingredients in the house when I was little, so if someone wanted something sweet (this was way before 24 hour supermarkets, by the way), we'd whip up a batch of these sandwich cookies. You can make them any size you want - use a whole graham cracker square, or break the squares into little rectangles and frost those. You can flavor the icing any way you'd like too. Add peanut butter, make them plain vanilla,...MORE or add some melted chocolate.

    I first tasted this fabulous recipe when my great-aunt, Louella Mundale, made them for a family gathering. They are crisp, rich, and absolutely delicious. The combination of melted dates and butter with crisp cereal is a knockout.
