No Bake Strawberry Cookies Recipe
This recipe is great for the kitchen inhabitant that wishes to find themselves living elsewhere pronto. If you aren't in too much of a hurry, however, you can also take the time to use some green food coloring and slivered almonds to make some “strawberry stems and leaves” to fill out the strawberry theme. Simply shape the cookies into strawberry-shaped ones, and put the green almonds at the top for decoration as stems and leaves!
No Bake Strawberry Cookies Ingredients
2 packages of strawberry jello
1 cup of chopped pecans
1 cup of fine coconut
3/4 cup of condensed milk
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
No Bake Strawberry Cookies Recipe Directions
Wash and hull the strawberries, then cut into small cubes. The cubed strawberries can either be mixed with the other ingredients in the following step, or can be used to decorate the exterior of the strawberries after the last step.
Mix all the ingredients except the decorating sugar together. Allow to sit for a few minutes, then shape into strawberries, or whatever other shape you please. Roll the sides of your strawberry cookies in the red sugar, leaving the top portion free of red sugar. Upend the cookies and press the tops into the green sugar.
If desired, put the green-dyed almonds on the top as leaves, or gently press the cubed strawberries into the surface of your berries.
Serve and enjoy!
