nO BAKE FRUIT PIE RECIPE
MERRY CHRISTMAS 
AND  HAPPY holidays

cookies recipe
ingredients
1 cup cocoa powder
1 cup milk 
 2 cups 'quick cook' oatmeal or crushed graham crackers
3/4 cup white sugar
 1/2 pound butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup raisins - chop or minced

method

Melt butter in a saucepan.
Mix the cocoa powder, milk, sugar and butter. 
Stir until mixture is of even consistency. Pour into the pan.
Add in the oatmeal and stir until they are evenly spread and distributed.
Let the mixture cool for five to ten minutes.

Spoon the mixture into balls on a cookie sheet, leaving enough space between them for their spreading out.

Let stand on counter for at least 20 minutes to stiffen, or you may refrigerate for quicker stiffening of the cookies.
tips and variations
May use peanut butter to give the no-bake cookies an extra flavor.

FRUIT PIE
Do a pie instead of cookies.
Make a pie crust using graham crackers.
6 1/2 oz graham crackers (12 crackers), finely ground (=1½ cups) = makes one “9-inch pie crust”.
Pour the hot mixture into the crust of Graham crackers.
Once cooled, top with whipped cream and fruit or other toppings. Voila ! done!
Technically, crackers are not really graham crackers unless they are made with graham flour, which is a hard (high protein) wheat flour in which the constituent bran, germ, and endosperm have been ground separately, the first two coarsely and the third finely… graham pie crust and crackers below>

  13. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from
    an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog?
    I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm
    thinking about setting up my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Cheers
