Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer — ((no bake)) cookies??

I few weeks ago I can across one of the cutest Christ­mas cook­ie ideas I think I have ever seen — when I viewed this Pin of Pin­ter­est. At first glance, I could tell these bright red cook­ie balls were not dipped and with that lit­tle detail, my curios­i­ty was peaked.

Before I share this yum­my cook­ie but­ter crum­ble topped brown­ie recipe with you, let me first tell you why we cel­e­brate the half-birth­days of my “lit­tle” herd. It all began on April 15, 2003; the day Baby Kade turned 6 months old. Well, actu­al­ly — it real­ly began way back when Baby Kade was about 4 days old & since I haven’t told a good sto­ry in a while — what bet­ter way to tell a sto­ry than with a per­fect brown­ie as the punch-line?!
