Christmas and cookies ~~ Holidays and cookies ~~ December and cookies ~~ you see cookies are all over the internet now and this is the time to start baking,,,, or not !

The recipe I am sharing today is No-Bake Christmas Oatmeal Cookies, which is perfect for me, living in South-Africa with our wonderful, some days a little too hot, weather. If I don’t have to switch on the oven, I am happy as ever.

These are quick to prepare and I roll them into tiny balls, bite size really. After making them and rolling into balls, it takes just a little while in the refrigerator to set and then they are ready to be dunked into cocoa and/or icing sugar – or both, as I have done here.


This recipe can easily be halved, doubled or even tripled and they keep well in a sealed container.
