Here is the last of my remaining holiday treat ideas that didn’t quite make it to the blog before Christmas. This is another old family favourite no-bake recipe.
Again, my dear old Mudder is the guest chef because I stole these out of her freezer to take the pic! Thanks Mom!
Note: The new photos are courtesy of my daughter who loves making these at any time of year.
The new photo below shows part of a batch made by my teenage daughter Olivia, who now keeps us well supplied with this family favourite during the holidays. She loves to eat these straight from the freezer, just like we did as kids.
2022 Update. The additional new photos are still courtesy of my daughter Olivia. It is one of her absolute favourites, as it was mine, growing up.
A Christmas family tradition, that we love to make year round.

These Winter White cookies are some of our family favourites during the Holidays, especially. They are easy, no bake and freeze well, making them ideal for your Holiday treat list.
- ¾ cup melted butter
- ¾ cup sugar
- 1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 3 beaten eggs
- 3 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1 cup fine dried coconut
- 2 ½ cups mini marshmallow
- Additional graham crackers to line the bottom of the pan
- 1 1/2 cups whipped cream, or use a whipped topping substitute
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 tbsp icing sugar, powdered sugar
- In a medium saucepan over medium low heat combine the melted butter, sugar and 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract.
- Cook for only a couple of minutes, stirring constantly until hot and the sugar is dissolved.
- Quickly whisk in the beaten eggs.
- Cook for only about a minute before removing from the heat and very quickly stirring in the graham crumbs, coconut and mini marshmallows.
- Lightly grease and line the bottom and sides of a 9x13 baking pan with parchment paper.
- Line the bottom of the pan with graham crackers. Cut as needed to fit.
- Spread the prepared mixture evenly over the crackers and chill well for a couple of hours or overnight.
- Beat together the whipping cream, 1 tsp vanilla extract and powdered sugar until stiff peaks form.
- Top the chilled cookie bars with whipped cream, cut in squares and serve.
- These freeze very well but you might like to use a non-dairy whipped topping if you want to freeze them with the cream already on them. If not, freeze them without the whipped cream and just add it before serving.
