K-Lusters (No Bake Cookies)

20 mins (prep 20)

Chewy, peanut-buttery, not too sweet, and very addictive! This is a childhood favorite (I was a child in the 70's), and I'm surprised not to find the recipe anywhere online. I would have thought it as common as the chocolate oatmeal no-bake cookies that are everywhere, with many variations. K-Lusters get rave reviews from everyone who tries them, and are great to make in the summer when you don't want to turn on the oven. (I grew up in a tropical climate, and this was often our reason for making them!) The recipe would also be good to take on a camping trip--you could stir up a batch in the afternoon and thrill everyone around the campfire that evening! My recipe is from a community cookbook published by missionary wives in the Philippines, but I've always assumed the name came from "Special K' or was on a Kellogg's corn flakes box. That's just a guess, however, since I haven't learned anything from my online research.
