These smelled incredible during the mixing process. I was really excited about eating them. I am a fan of Oatmeal Scotchies and was hoping for a very similar cookie. These just felt like they were missing something. (Maybe oatmeal?) They taste good, but with the smell, my brain was expecting it’s favored scotchies and that’s not what it received.

Beyond that, if you are not a die hard scotchies fan, these are a good cookie. they were easy to put together. I was fascinated with the idea of putting a pudding mix into a cookie batter.
