Oven Shy Cookies ~ Holiday Recipes

~When I was a teenager, our state had an annual Homeschool Camp. Every year we all came together for a fun week of sports, games, activities, music and fellowship. I have the best memories, and one of those memories includes helping in the kitchen. One year I helped make cookies for the entire camp. This recipe is one of the cookies we prepared for that evening meal's dessert. I loved it so much, the lady working in the cafeteria gave me the recipe for a standard batch instead of the enormous amount we actually made. It must have been at least quadrupled!!!

The Oven Shy Cookies recipe is very simple to make, and as the name implies~ does not require any baking!!!  Hope you guys enjoy them as much as my family and I still do every Holiday Season.

*Also check out some other great Holiday Baking and No Baking Recipes at the bottom of this post. 

Oven Shy Cookies

Makes- approximately 36 cookies 


  • 12 oz. Butterscotch Bits
  • 1/2 cup Peanut Butter
  • 5 cups Corn Flakes
  1. Pour the Corn Flakes into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Melt Butterscotch Bits and Peanut Butter together over medium heat in sauce pan; stirring constantly. Watch closely to keep mixture from burning on the bottom. 
  3. Pour melted mixture over Corn Flakes. Stir until all the Corn Flakes are coated. This will take a few minutes.
  4. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper. You will have to mound them together because they do seem to want to fall. I usually wait a minute or two, and let the mixture rest, before beginning to drop out the cookies. For best results, place the waxed paper on a cookie sheet and then place cookie sheet in freezer to speed up the cooling.  
  5. After cookies have set up, Store in a covered container in the refrigerator.

  1. Since I'm no good at baking I'm loving this oven shy cookie. I'll have to try this with the kids. Thanks for sharing.

  2. oh these look so good. I will have to add these to my holiday baking list

  3. I'm a HUGE fan of no-bake recipes! Your recipe reminds me of a time when my son was younger, about 10 years ago when he was 4. He made a recipe off the side of a cereal box with my younger brother. I was following Weight Watchers at the time, so after he made them (sadly) I told him I couldn't eat them. He said "well, when you're not fat will you try one?". Poor kiddo. I wasn't even "fat" by definition. It's a shame of the importance we place on weight. He's a skinny mini, so I'd hate for him to adapt that kind of vision. Now, I just wish I would have tried it to show my son some love! We made kolaches for the holidays together and I ate them. We all deserve a little sweet treat every now and then!

  4. These look delicious. I am definintely going to have to give this recipe a try.

  5. These look tasty and delicious. I am going to try this recipe next week with my family.

  6. My nieces and nephews will adore these. I love how it's a recipe that you've had since you were younger, it makes it that more special.

  7. my dh loves these. He used to eat them as a child. I've never made them for him. I'll have to now!

  8. I love this recipe! I must try it!

  9. I bet the kids wouldn't even know that there is anything different about these cookies compared to other cookies.

  10. This recipe is good with Christmas M&Ms added in too! :)
