Pistachio No Bake Cookies

My sister said she was going to make these cookies for her cookie exchange. We left town before we could try the ones she made, so I decided to make our own, and take them to my cookie exchange. Since mine was supposed to be helping us use our food storage, these were the perfect cookie.
Pistachio No-Bake Cookies

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
6 oz (2/3 cup) evaporated milk
1 package (4 serving size) instant pistachio pudding
3 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats

In large saucepan, combine sugar, butter and evaporated milk. Bring mixture to rolling boil. Cook for about 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and add pudding mix and oats; mix thoroughly. Cool 15 minutes; drop from teaspoon onto waxed paper lined tray.

The cookies didn't look "fancy" enough as dollops, so we tried a few variations. This first one probably should have had some melted white chocolate or frosting drizzled on it, but there wasn't timeDo you think the cookies could have been turned into wreaths?I think I liked the nut in the center best. If I'd had pistachio nuts hanging around, that would have been perfect.
Give them a try. They're perfect for when your oven's not available.
