Well with the start of the New Year 2012, I have to acknowledge that I really blew my 2011 goal of making, and posting all of the cookies from my series OUR COOKIE NATION (courtesy of Readers Digest & Allrecipes.com)!
So I have double vowed to complete that goal this year, and I'm hoping you will keep me motivated with reminders when I forget! LOL
Everyone has a recipe for No-Bake cookies. You know the one with oats, chocolate, peanut butter and a few other ingredients? Well this recipe is different, and I liked it. A lot. One of the things I really like is its adaptability to different flavors. Plus its extremely easy and delish.
Easy No Bake Cookies
2 c. sugar
3/4 c. butter
2/3 c. milk
1 (3.9 oz.) box instant chocolate pudding mix
3 1/2 c. quick cooking oats
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
In a large pan, mix together the sugar, butter and the milk. Bring to a boil. Boil 2 minutes. Turn off the heat, add in the pudding mix, oats and vanilla. Let stand 5 minutes.
Drop by teaspoon onto waxed paper, allow to cool completely and enjoy! Store in airtight container.
What makes this recipe so flexible is just changing up the flavor of pudding you use! Think about all the possible combinations! In fact I have a second post coming up that is related to this cookie, where I used a different flavor mix.
(and as one final note, this cookie is less expensive to make than the recipe using peanut butter...)
