These cookies were made from a recipe written in my mom’s handwriting. Cooking with her recipes always makes me feel connected to her, but this recipe is even more special. I had been dating Chris for 3 years when my mom passed away. My mom had written on this recipe “Chris loves.” That was apparent by the dwindling number of cookies within minutes of them being done. However, to me it signifies how Chris had become a part of our family.

Mom made it permanent by writing on her treasured recipe cards long before Chris & I exchanged our vows. I love the little memories like this that the holidays bring. I know there are so many versions of these easy no bake cookies, but they’re even sweeter coming from my mom!

No bake cookies like these and Rudolph Nose Dough Balls are the perfect way to alleviate oven space when you’re enjoying a Christmas cookie baking day!
