Pudding No-Bake Oatmeal Cookies

Pudding No-Bake Oatmeal Cookies


"My grandmother had made no-bake cookies so much, she was never seen looking at the recipe. This recipe was obtained from a local nursing home and is so easy my 9 year old makes them and the flavor is changeable to your taste. I generally make 2 batches so that we don't have to store half a can of evaporated milk. Our favorite flavors are made with chocolate fudge or butterscotch pudding."

WOW! This recipe was super easy. They took longer than 15 min to set up, but half of the cookies were gone before they were set. I used Devils Food Pudding Mix (Highly Recommended) and cut the s...

Original recipe is confusing as far as evaporated milk goes. 1/2 can (12oz) means 6oz, so maybe that's why others had problems with the cookies setting. I read it wrong the first time too and a...

Great Recipe! Based on other reviews, I did lessen the amount of sugar and I cooked it on the stove rather than the microwave. I also used Pistachio instant pudding and reduced the amount of o...

Good and easy cookies! I made mine with chocolate instant pudding. I only rated these four stars because I cut back the sugar to 1 1/2 cups, and the butter to 1/2 cup, and cannot imagine 2 cup...

This recipe is a new staple for us! I love it! I did adjust the portions based on a few reviews and wanted to cut down on fat - I used 1 stick of butter (1/2 cup), 2/3 cup of sugar. They turned...

These aren't bad for as simple as they are. However, I like the ones made with Hershey's Cocoa better. These are very easy to make, and I had no problems with mine firming up, just a matter of...

These are super sweet. Very easy, a good summer cookie because you only need the microwave. My 6 year old daughter and I made them and she loved the fact that she could do pretty much everythi...
