Grandma's Pudding Cookies

I want to throw some recipes in once in awhile because that is another unfinished project I'm working on.  I want to make one of those cookbooks for our family.  I think that would be something I would use and enjoy.  I hate it when I want to make a certain recipe and have to look through every book and file until I find it. 

My Grandma Haskins was an excellent cook and was the cook at the Argonia Cafe when I was growing up.  I loved to stay the night with her, because that meant I could get up at 4:00 am with her and head to the restaurant to start making pies and she would make me breakfast.

I chose to start with this recipe because it is simple and it is January.  January is not my best month.  I love sunshine and warm weather.  These little cookies, when made with lemon pudding, are little bits of sunshine on a plate...and they remind me of my Grandma.  She very seldom made simple things, so I will struggle with some of her recipes... lol



Grandma's Pudding Cookies
1 cup Bisquick
1 (about 3 1/2 oz) pkg. instant pudding
1/4 cup veg. oil
1 egg

Mix all ingredients until dough forms a ball.  Shape dough by teaspoonfuls into balls.  Place on ungreased baking sheet.  Dip bottom of glass into sugar; flatten balls.  Bake about 8 minutes at 350 degrees.  Makes about 2 dozen.  Good with lemon pudding or the flavor of your choice.

 I've tried to make this recipe with sugar free pudding, but I need to perfect it before I put it on here.  We don't eat a lot of sugar in my house because of my husband's diet, but there are always exceptions.  He has type 1 diabetes and I do try to help him avoid eating sugary foods by trying to make them sugar free.  I'll blog some of those recipes as they happen.  Stay tuned...

Well, I know how you could have one in an hour and you wouldn't have to bake them...

These look yummy, and easy enough- I've recently found out I have a gluten-intolerance, so I've started using gluten-free bisquick for recipes, will have to give this a try.
