Easy No-Bake Cookies

 OUR COOKIE NATION  (courtesy of Readers Digest &Allrecipes.com)!

Everyone has a recipe for No-Bake cookies. You know the one with oats, chocolate, peanut butter and a few other ingredients?  Well this recipe is different, and I liked it. A lot. One of the things I really like is its adaptability to different flavors.  Plus its extremely easy and delish.

Easy No Bake Cookies

2 c. sugar
3/4 c. butter 
2/3 c. milk
1 (3.9 oz.) box instant chocolate pudding mix
3 1/2 c. quick cooking oats
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

In a large pan, mix together the sugar, butter and the milk.  Bring to a boil.  Boil 2 minutes.  Turn off the heat, add in the pudding mix, oats and vanilla.  Let stand 5 minutes.

 Drop by teaspoon onto waxed paper, allow to cool completely and enjoy!  Store in airtight container.
What makes this recipe so flexible is just changing up the flavor of pudding you use!  Think about all the possible combinations!  In fact I have a second post coming up that is related to this cookie, where I used a different flavor mix. 
(and as one final note, this cookie is less expensive to make than the recipe using peanut butter...)
