1 (5 ounce) can
1 (3.4 ounce) package
instant butterscotch pudding mix
2 1/2 cups
quick cooking oats
This is the recipe for the cookies my friends call "crack" cookies as you can't stop eating them. VERY IMPORTANT-IT IS 3 1/2 C OATMEAL. Let the mixture stand 15 minutes before spooning out. Cool in fridge at least an hour.
I'm sorry, these just didn't work for us. My son and I followed the recipe exact and it though it set up, it did not set up enough like a no-bake would. You'd go to pick it up and it would fall apart. Also, what we did try, it was way too sweet. Even for my kids.
Complete waste of ingredients . I have try this twice to be sure that I did not make a mistake but this recipe is just wrong. Cookies never set.
Mine set up just fine-- I popped them right into the freezer to let them harden fast. They're kind of gooey, but that's okay. My problem is that they're at once too sweet and too buttery. Not usually a problem for me, I admit, but these are just overpowering. I'd recommend cutting the sugar and the butter to about 1 1/4 cups sugar and maybe less than 1/2 cup butter. The butterscotch pudding just puts too much butter flavor in-- if you use chocolate, you could add the butter back in, I guess. Maybe if you added some salted peanuts to this, it would make a cool salty/sweet treat.
First of all, I think it should be 3 1/2 cups of oatmeal. Also, the first time I made it I used a 12 oz can of evaporated milk instead of a 5 oz can - and it WAS way too much liquid. My kids loved the flavor and softness of this cookie!
First of all, I read all the reviews and I used 1/2/3 cup sugar, 1/2 cup butter, 2/3 cup evaporated milk (but then I realized 5 oz. was 1/2 cup + 1 TBLS). then It said to only cook until boiling, but I cooked it a few min. on med. heat. I added the pudding, but also added 1 tsp vanilla, and 3 1/2 cups oatmeal. The butter was unsalted and I thought I could have used salt, but because the pudding has salt, I didn't. I was going to garnish with a salted peanut. After all these alterations, my cookies seem sticky and not set, but it's only been about a half hour. They are very good, kinda like a payday bar. I would make them again. As one of the other reviews, I made these to go along with chocolate peanut butter no bakes, which did set up and are not sticky. Maybe its the pudding?
these are actually pretty good... make sure you only put 1/2 of the can of milk and i would do almost 4 cups of oatmeal. a hit in my home!
The cookies never "set". Too much liquid in recipe.
