Name: Expedition No-Bake Cookies
Comments: Took about 30 minutes to do (except for overnight cooling)
8/13/2018 - I made 22 large cookies.
8/13/2018 - This recipe is nearly identical to the No-Bake Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies recipe, which has the option of adding 2 tsp vanilla and 1/2 cup of walnuts with the oatmeal. I merged the two by increasing the amount of vanilla. I did not use walnuts, but added a teaspoon of almond extract. That resulted in a fairly strong flavor. The yield was 20 large cookies.
8/13/2018 - I tried to follow the recipe as above but with 2 teaspoons of vanilla. It came out very sweet - like candy - and with a lot of liquid. Did I lose count and accidentally use 2 1/2 cups of oats instead of 3? It made 20 cookies.
8/10/2020 - I added 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts to the mix. Otherwise, it was exactly as specified. A soup spoon gave me 25 cookies.
2/22/2021 - We got 22 cookies, without salt.
8/7/2021 - I doubled the vanilla. The soup spoon gave me 24 cookies.
