 These Haystack Cookies are a recipe that was handed down to me from my grandma! It is a simple, easy dessert that hardly requires any time at all! Best of all the are NO BAKE!

The crunch from the Chow Mein Noodles is a fun change up to the normal cookie. Let’s talk about the chow mein noodles for a minute. I get questions on them all the time when I make a recipe with them so I want to clarify exactly what they are. These are what I use. This is not an affiliate link, its simply just to show you what it looks like. They are NOT pasta noodles. I used them in these Egg Nest Cookies as well.

These cookies are THE PERFECT go to easy, quick recipe when you need dessert in a pinch and they make a great after-school-treat for the kids that they enjoy helping out with!

    These cookies/desserts, whatever you want to call them, have been around for 50+ years. It was a way to use up the excess stuff from Chinese take out. Nothing new for me
