Just finished baking these cookies and they are just delicious! I don't think I'll ever buy another 'packaged' oatmeal creme cookie again!
I've made these several times to take to work and they are requested all the time. The chewyness of the cookie and cream go perfect together. Cookies are also great plain, the flavor is delicious. Thanks for the recipe.
So yummy! My kids loved them with the cream inside but I enjoyed the cookies plain even more!
These were wonderful. I didn't go overboard with the cream inside and they were just right.
These were absolutely delicious, both as sandwich cookies and as individual oatmeal cookies! They're definitely reminiscent of the Little Debbie oatmeal cream pies, but I found these to be much better! Do keep a careful eye on them while baking. I left my first batch in the oven a tad too long and they turned out crispier than I intended.
