No-Bake Cookies

There are some secrets to making the best no-bake cookies. They're almost always cooked on the stovetop or in the microwave. Be absolutely sure that the sugar is dissolved before you stop cooking. If you don't, the finished cookies will be grainy. Also follow cooling and shaping instructions carefully.
