BEST OATMEAL CREAM COOKIES
These oatmeal cream cookies are crunchy on the outside and incredibly moist on the inside. If you love a crunchy oatmeal cookie, you will enjoy these cookies filled with toffee and pecans. They are fantastic all by themselves, but when you add the delicious cream filling, they are amazing.
By the way, the original cookie recipe is from Susan Mallery’s Fools Gold Cookbook. Therefore, I made these cookies after reviewing her cookbook. Over the top, Out of the park is what I think about these Oatmeal Toffee Cookies. After making these cookies for the first time, my family, including myself, almost ate all the dough before we could put the second batch in the oven. Hence, we love the oats with the toffee and pecans. Most of all, it is a terrific combination! This time, I made a vanilla cream filling to go between two cookies. The filling is made with butter, shortening, powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk. As a result, it is light and sweet and goes perfectly with these soft, crunchy cookies.
