At a local coffee house I delighted in the site of some cute “nest cookies.” These were made with a no-bake cookie recipe that I have made many times. All they did was add three Easter peanut M&Ms in the center to make them look like a bird’s nest. I resisted and did not sample any but I did decide I would replicate these for my grandchildren.
