Pudding Oatmeal Cookies

"If you like the chocolate chip cookies with the pudding in them (recipe #69521) you should try these too. They are the best oatmeal cookies I have ever had. So soft and yummy! I usually use butterscotch pudding. If I use the vanilla pudding, I put butterscotch chips in them instead of raisins."

    These cookies were AWESOME! I used butterscotch flavoured pudding and they were good and not too overly sweet. The whole family loved them and I am going to use them for my bake exchange tomorrow night!

    WOW! Delicious! These cookies are so chewy and flavorful! I put in a cup of semisweet chocolate chips along with the raisins. YUMMY!!! Thanks so much!

    We love these cookies! I got this same recipe from "A Mormon Cookbook". We just made these again using 1/2 margarine and 1/2 applesauce in place of the butter and sugar-free instant pudding mix, and they still turned out wonderfully. In response to one of the previous reviews, mine always turn out very soft (in fact, too soft for my DH who prefers crispy cookies that he can dunk, lol). You can also add a little cinnamon to the mix to change the flavor a bit, also.

    So easy to put together and really good. I did make a couple of small subs, so will have to make them again to compare the 2. I added 1 tsp cinnamon with the vanilla pudding, then I uesd some white chocolate chips, and a bit of diced apple instead of the raisins because I don't like them. This would be wonderful with the butterscotch chips, but I didnt have them on hand. Easy, chewy cookie. Hubby will be pleased when he has some later. Thanks for a great recipe.

    I am really surprised - Since I have made and loved the pudding chocolate chip cookies for years, I thought this one would be a no-brainer choice for me. I made these to include in Christmas cookie baskets, and not only didn't I care for them, I haven't heard that anyone else did either. I can't put my finger on it but I thought they were bland and also they weren't as soft as I like. They were OK - but not something I would likely make again.

Yet another feature change that has made the website less user friendly. It's sad to watch a fantastic site deteriorate over the years. Some of my recipes are on my blog.
