No Bake Cookie Recipe, a Blue Ribbon Winner in the 1970s is a peanut butter cookie made with graham crackers, nuts and coconut, then dipped in a chocolate coating. It is also called Golf Ball Cookies.
This is a wonderful recipe for getting into the joyous family holiday spirits by letting the children help make!
For gifts from the kitchen, place several in a clear glass jar, cover with a decorative lid or top and tie on a pretty bow.
Another idea is to place in a square or rectangular gift box with other cookies and gift wrap.
Homemade cookies are always welcome!
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
18 oz. jar crunchy peanut butter
2 sticks butter, softened
1 lb. box powdered sugar
7 oz. can fine coconut
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
all ingredients together, thoroughly. Chill mixture in refrigerator at
least 2 hours until it is easy to shape with the hands into large marble
size balls. Chill in refrigerator again for a few hours for easy dipping.
2 packages chocolate chip or butterscotch morsels
1/2 block (2 oz.) household wax*
Melt wax and morsels together in top of a double boiler. With fork or candy dipping spoon, dip each golf ball into coating.
Place a wire rack on a cookie sheet to catch drippings. Place dipped balls on rack until coating has stopped dripping and cooled.
Place cooled dripped coating back into pot for reuse.
*Household wax is usually found in the canning supplies section of the grocery store.
