Amie’s No-Bake Macadamia Cherry CookiesI would!  With the weather warming up (well, it was until this week, but I’ve not given up on it quite yet!) recipes that don’t use the oven are all the more welcome in my kitchen.  These no-bake cookies were created by Amie of The Healthy Apple, look utterly fab, and I’ll be making them as soon as I get to Sahadi’s to pick up some more dried fruit!  Let me know if you give them a whirl, and how they go over in your house.
