For most people Labor Day means the end of summer. However, Labor Day is meant to celebrate the contribution of workers socially and economically. For this reason, many companies give their employees a three day weekend. Celebrate the end of summer and your hard work this coming weekend by making a delicious dessert that represents your day off; no-bake cookies.
There will be no need to fire up the oven or spend immense amounts of time putting together your holiday weekend dessert. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy these no-bake cookies recipes.
