"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." — TIGGER68

1/2 (12 ounce) can
1 (3.4 ounce) package
instant butterscotch pudding mix
3 1/2 cups
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 sugar to 1-1/2 cups. I used the stove top, and let the mixture boil for 2 min. then added the pudding and oats. PERFECT! A nice change from the regular no bake recipe.
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 almost dumped in the whole can. I used 6 oz and they were not too moist at all, actually almost too dry. They didn't set on their own so I popped them in the oven at 400 for 7 min. I had no parchment paper so I just sprayed the cookie sheet with PAM and it worked fine. Any longer than 7 min though and they burned (oops). I also used splenda, fat-free/sugar-free pudding, and fat-free evap. milk. Will try to experiment with butter substitute next time.
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 oats and added 1 cup of coconut. I brought them into work because my co-workers are my recipe guinea pigs...they loved them! Thank you!!!
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 cups of sugar in these! I love sweet treats and even with the sugar cut back these are just about as sweet as I could tolerate. Mine set up perfectly.
A very good recipe considering it's so quick and easy. i halved the recipe and added unsweetened cocoa powder since other reviewers seemed to indicate that their cookies turned out very sweet and liked the cocoa version of this. My cookies seemed to set just fine, but I used as much oatmeal as seemed necessary in order to make the cookies form more solidly. Towards the end I rolled up sunflower seeds in the cookies, and my roommate like the seeded ones even better.
edit: i decided i wanted the cookies to be less sticky, so I smushed the cookies into a cookie-like shape (flatter) and baked the no-bake cookies for about 15 min. at 400 deg. Crunchy outside - chewy inside. Even better! Perhaps defeating the purpose, but tasty nonetheless.
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 out so yummy, and not sure if the reduction in butter made them less gooey but mine sat fine. Not sure where they get 48 servings though, I made 24 rounded tablespoons and they turned out great! Thanks for sharing!
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 preference here. Thanks for the recipe!
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 everything herself. We used chocolate fudge pudding and they are nearly as good as brownies!
