These Oreo Pudding Cookies are as perfect as you could imagine them!
This past weekend my husband participated in a “race“.
It involved running up mountains, climbing over walls, jumping off cliffs and crawling through mud…among other things.
He came home from the race in pain. He had rope burns, abrasions, bruises, splinters, gashes and a limp.
And a smile.
I don’t understand.
So he basically hasn’t been able to move since Saturday.
Apparently he plans on doing it again next year.
AND he asked if I wanted to do it with him.
I promptly introduced myself to him. Because apparently he has suffered from some brain contusion that affects his memories.
He then told me I should “think outside the box”.
Honey, that box isn’t even in my mini storage.
I asked him under what circumstance I would ever crawl through mud, up a hill underneath barbed wire? Unless there is a Louis Vuitton waiting at the end for me, there is zero chance I would ever participate in such an activity.
I can’t even guarantee that if a crazy clown ax murderer was chasing me that I would do that. I’m pretty sure I would just lay down and play dead. That’s my “escape from a murderer tactic”, btw. Feel free to use it. I mean, chances are I won’t be able to outrun anyone, so playing dead is really the next available option.
So long story short my kitchen project, which is now my floor project, is on hold until my husband can bend his knees again.
My husband. It’s never dull.
I need a cookie.
These are pudding cookies.
Actually they are Oreo Pudding cookies. If you don’t have Oreo pudding, just use vanilla. If you don’t have pudding at all, don’t make these cookies. Sorry.
Then you should eat them.
I heard that there’s another Oreo Pudding recipe going on over at Confessions of a Cookbook Queen today. It might involve poking. Snort.
- 1 cup butter, room temperature
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- ¾ cup light brown sugar
- 1 pkg (4.2 oz) Oreo pudding/pie filling mix
- 1 Tbsp vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 2¼ cup all purpose flour
- ¾ cup old fashioned oats
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 cups chopped Cookies and Creme Bars (About 4 Hershey's are readily available at the supermarket, but I actually used Dove Cookies and Creme Promises I had on-hand)
- Preheat oven to 375°
- In a stand mixer cream together butter, pudding mix and both sugars. Add in eggs and vanilla and mix until combined. Turn mixer to low and slowly add in flour, baking soda, salt and oats.
- Stir until combined.
- Stir in chopped candy.
- Drop by tablespoon onto baking sheet and bake for 8-9 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet for 3 minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool completely.
