      I won't rate this with stars due to the fact that I took it upon myself to experiment with this recipe. I tried it with sugarfree pudding and it was not successful. I just wanted to note this as an FYI to those who might try it. They were dry to the extreme. My bad, but I thought it was worth a try. :)

      Delicious cookie and so easy to make! I subbed light margarine since that's what we keep on hand. I'm not sure if it made a difference, but I also used a regular cook & serve pudding since that's what we had in the pantry. The cookies were great, tasted like a shortbread. Thanks for posting!

      I must say,I was skeptical about this recipe. No eggs, no sugar? They were fabulous! My husband and sons agreed. I will just double this recipe from now on.The pudding will now be my "secret". They're light, buttery and melt in your mouth!
