No Bake cookies don’t need to go in the oven. Most of them require that you melt certain ingredients over the stove or in the microwave. Then dry ingredients are stirred in and the cookie is shaped and allowed to cool. Try one of our huge list of no bake cookie recipes.
1 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
