On average there are maybe 2 hours in a whole week where my kitchen is totally spotless. And by spotless I mean there are dirty dishes hiding away in the dishwasher and approximately 60% of the counter space is visible. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, no?
Being that I’m in that 2-hr sweet spot as we speak, the thought of going full bore on the Christmas baking makes my jaw clench. Can I please just get one more day before the endless cook-eat-wash-repeat cycle starts again?
At the same time the holiday events are starting to populate our social calendar and the opportunities to send white clouds of dust spewing from the Kitchen Aid are becoming few and far between.
So here’s my solution for easing into the Christmas baking – a no-bake cookie that utilizes a single appliance! It’s literally a drop and roll with a few pulses of the food processor in between.
So whether you’re looking for an easy “gateway cookie” to get you primed for the season, or you need a healthy reward for getting your New Years gym resolution started early, or you’re a breastfeeding mom with low energy and little time – I’ve got you covered!
