I don’t know. There’s not much that wouldn’t work with this crowd. I have never made a no bake confection but there’s always a first time. Thanks for thinking of me. Some days I need easy!

It has been a while due to vacations both mine and my son-in-law’s but today I decided it was time to get back in the saddle again. Nice thought. No white sugar. Refused to be defeated and found a recipe from Land O Lakes that doesn’t require any white sugar. Plain peanut butter cookies.

Dorie Greenspan’s Double Ginger Molasses Cookies.  

 

Since my food stylist is on vacation I thought I would  take to heart the observation made earlier in another context by @Chris Hennes—  choose the most attractive specimens and only photograph those.  :D

 Out of respect for the recipe I am going to call  these “salted chocolate chip thingies“.  They were supposed to be the much celebrated recipe for Salted  Butter and Chocolate Chunk Shortbread cookies from Alison Roman’s Dining In.

 

Despite much help from @blue_dolphinon how to cut the rolls without the cookies crumbling, when I went to brush them with the egg before rolling them in the sugar I realized I had put the egg into the dough!  Damn.  Even as I read the ingredient “one large egg, beaten”, I wondered why you would beat an egg that you were going to beat when you added it to the dough anyway.  But I added it, as one does, to many cookies recipes when the butter and sugar had been creamed. 

 

 They are still tasty but certainly not what they should be and they are rather delicate.  Nevertheless I expect them to disappear in short order.

From my son-in-law:

 

Omg those things are good. They aren’t crumbly. They are perfect. 

 

 I knew they would not be wasted!😂

More Spiced Wafers.  I followed @blue_dolphin‘s  method and reduced the size of the cookies using approximately 15 g of dough per. I got 47 cookies from my batch. Here .

I understand the rolling in the powdered sugar before baking. I know there are chocolate crinkle cookie recipes that use the same method. After baking, the contrast of the chocolate and the white of the cracked powdered sugar is part of the "charm" of the cookie. Using this same method for a white-powdered-sugar-on-blonde cookies doesn't strike me as contrast-y enough so it's an odd method to use.

As for the "Key Lime Pie" flavor...at least they tasted the citrus, though erringly so. I wouldn't consider it a fail. Just unexpected results.

Funny how the world works.  I saw a box of these in Wawa last night.  First time I've ever noticed them.

 Classic brownies from The Artful Baker. I used black cocoa powder only because we were discussing it on another thread. My granddaughter has declared these the best brownies ever. Not being a connoisseur I have to take her word for it. She will get one or two if her dad is generous and he usually is.
