    These are great. easy to make, no baking. We called them Australian Cookies or No Bake cookies. I’ve also heard them called Preacher Cookies. We drop them on wax paper instead of foil. Canned milk will work also. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla is called for in our recipe, sometimes we use it sometimes we don’t. Enjoy.
