Do you remember these Chocolate No-Bake Cookies? Well, one day when we were over at a friend's house for a play date, we made some Vanilla No-Bake Cookies. While the kids played, we baked. That's usually what seems to happen at Marsha's house. We are either trying some new recipe she has found or trying out a craft or crochet pattern. It's pretty fun, actually.
But anyway... these no-bake cookies are one of my favorite easy cookies. They use vanilla pudding powder instead of cocoa. Yummy! I was thinking maybe one of these days I'd try different flavors of pudding to see what they taste like (peanut butter, butterscotch, etc).
Vanilla Pudding No-Bake Cookies:
2 c sugar
3/4 c butter or margarine
2/3 c milk
1 package instant vanilla pudding
4-5 cups quick oats
1/2 tsp vanilla
Mix sugar, butter and milk in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes. Turn off heat and add pudding, oats and vanilla. Mix well and let stand 5 minutes. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper. Cool.
