    Default Need Easy and Portable Dessert Idea..

    Ok, here's a challenge... I need to make a dessert for tonight and Sunday (so needs to be able to keep for 2 days). It needs to be able to travel well either in a basket or a cooler. also not too messy since we are outside but we will have plates, napkins, plastic utensils etc... Oh and Finally, Easy and CHEAP to make. I don't have much time this weekend and need to make this pretty easily and quick tonight and have a very very very limited budget.

    TIA

    Cookies! Make a couple dozen and tote them around. Who says desert has to be fancy?

    I'm probably a day late and a dollar short, but here's my favorite easy cookie recipe:


    BIG 3 COOKIES
    1 cup peanut butter (chunky is best, creamy will work)
    1 large egg
    1 cup sugar
    Mix 3 ingredients together in bowl. Roll dough into balls and place on sprayed cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Flatten each ball with fork dipped in sugar. Bake at 350F for about 12 minutes. Do not overbake. Cool slightly on pan and remove from pan and cool on wire rack. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.

    A quick recipe to throw together if company is stopping by unexpectedly, but announced.
