Last week, I made some No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies which tasted so lovely and gooey that I decided I had to try experimenting with some other flavours. My first choice was coconut and glacé cherries, both of which go together nicely and were also cluttering up my baking cupboard, so in the interests of my ongoing #KitchenClearout, that was a win-win situation !
Cherry & Coconut No Bake Cookies
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
a pinch of salt
1.5 cups porridge oats
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
1/4 cup glacé cherries, halved
Bring the sugar, milk, butter and salt to the boil in a saucepan. Simmer for one minute until it thickens.
Add the oats and cook for a further one minute, stirring. Turn off the heat and leave to cool.
Stir in the coconut and cherries and dollop spoonfuls on a baking sheet covered in baking parchment or foil.
Put in the fridge to chill so that they can go lovely and gooey. They don't need to be stored in the fridge but in this weather, the coolness is extra delicious.
