No-Bake Cookie FAQs

  1. Are no-bake cookies safe to eat? 

Yes. No-bake cookie recipes don’t contain any eggs. Eliminating raw eggs greatly reduces the risk of food-borne illness in these recipes.

  1. Is there a way to harden no-bake cookies?

Oftentimes, no-bake cookies use sticky ingredients like peanut butter or marshmallow that don’t harden quickly at room temperature. To harden no-bake cookies, simply pop them in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour.

  1. Can you freeze no-bake cookies?

No-bake cookies can easily be stored in the freezer. After assembling, place each cookie 1-2 inches apart on a cookie sheet. Place the sheet in the freezer for 2 hours. After the cookies have frozen, transfer them to a sealed container or zip-top bag. They can remain in the freezer for up to 3 months.
