How to Fix Them. A good baseline is boiling the cookies for 1-2 minutes (start timing once the mixture is at a full boil). If you’ve made your no bake cookies too dry in the past, aim for closer to 1 minute. Also be sure to use the kind of oats the recipe calls for.
Why did my No Bake Cookies not set?
Why won’t my no bake cookies harden? If your cookies are too soft and not set up that means you didn’t cook the cookie mixture long enough. In order for the cookies to harden properly the mixture must be boiled until it reaches a temperature of 230°F. This is approximately 1 ½ minutes on medium heat.
How long can you store No Bake Cookies? No bake cookies can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container or Ziploc bag for about a week, or two weeks in the refrigerator. You can also refrigerate no bake cookies to help them cool faster, but that is not required.
