"Ive made many recipes from.TOH that my SS kids loved...this one no. The kids simply hate oatmeal lol. However, the adults gobbled them up esp Preacher. I would make again for a fellowship."

"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!"
