"My toddler usually only nibbles the edge of any given cookie and then says its yucky. I made these and he ate 5 in one night!"

"Every time I have made these they have always turned out crunchy on the outside and undercooked in the middle. I have tried adding more flour and it seemed to help a bit. I will look for a better oatmeal cookie recipe to pair with the cream filling."

"Wow! These are sooo good. I did use quick oats instead of old fashioned because I had just bought a huge container of them and wanted to use them. The texture of the cookie was wonderful. The filling is sooo good. It gave me ideas to use it on cupcakes. They were a hit at work!"

"Made this recipe this week for my hubby who is an oatmeal cookie fan. He absolutely loves them. Shared some with the neighbors and was told they are the best ever !!!!! Excellent recipe and it really looks like it is a lot more work that it is."
