Just 3 Ingredients: No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies have to be the easiest cookies that I've ever made!  As you all know, I'm somewhat of a lazy cook.  I just don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, especially when a snack craving hits.  So when I can have a healthy dessert and it takes no effort, I'm completely on board.  And when I say these take no effort, I completely mean it.  There are only three ingredients and you don't even have to measure them if you don't want to.  Throw those three things in your food processor and voila....dessert is done!  The only thing you even have t ...more
