A - Z Blogging Challenge - O

I've been making these cookies for over 30 years...they're so delicious!!  I hope you love them as much as my family and I do!


Oatmeal Cookies (with pudding)

1 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup softened butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 pkg. vanilla instant pudding (4 serving size)
2 eggs
1/2 cup coconut
3 1/2 cups regular oatmeal (not instant)

In a small bowl, combine flour and baking soda.  Set aside.  In a large bowl combine both sugars, softened butter, vanilla, and vanilla pudding powder.  Using electric mixer, beat until smooth and creamy.  Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Stir in flour mixture, then coconut and then oatmeal.  Mix well.
Drop by teaspoonful onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.  Using the tines of a fork, flatten each cookie slightly.
Bake 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees F. or until slightly golden - Do not over bake.

Yummy indeed! I love oatmeal cookies, but we don't have much of a tradition for making them here (Norway), so I'm ALL FOR recipes. Thank you internet, and thank you Monica!

I love oatmeal cookies! I'll have to try this recipe. Adding the pudding sounds like an interesting touch.

These sound fantastic...Do you think they'd work with gluten free flour substitute?

Hi Monica. What great recipes you have here. Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting, otherwise I might not have found you.

I flaked on the A-Z because I completely forgot about it. I started today, as soon as I realized it was going on. I guess O's not a bad letter to start. ;)

Oatmeal cookies are THE BEST!! Mmmmmm. Now I want to make some!

Monica, I found your blog by searching for others who might have made the oatmeal pudding cookies I have loved for years. It seems you and I have a couple things in common: we both recently made these cookies and I'm also an RN (Pedi ICU and now Pedi primary care). I would prescribe these cookies to anyone anytime!

Ohmy, an oatmeal cookie with pudding mix in it? Does it make it a creamier cookie? Sounds wonderful!
