Ever run into a situation where you need a batch of cookies quickly?  This recipe is perfect.  It is free of two allergens: wheat and peanuts.  It is a one-pot recipe: everything is mixed stovetop.  It is no-bake: make the cookies one evening and allow them to set up overnight.  And most importantly: it is a crowd-pleaser!
