Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon Allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups quick or old fashioned oatmeal

Cream:

  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar sifted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon whipping cream

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl cream together butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, this will take 2-3 minutes. Next, add eggs and vanilla and mix until combined. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, and salt. Add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients, mixing until combined. Add in oats and mix them all together.
  • Drop dough onto cookie sheets. Dough will spread out so keep cookies about 2-3 inches apart. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. ¬†Once cookies have cooled completely, prepare the cream filling.

Cream Filling:

  • With a mixer beat butter on medium-high speed for 4-5 minutes. Your buttercream should be extra fluffy. With your mixer on a low speed start to slowly add in the powdered sugar. Continue mixing until the powdered sugar is completely mixed in. Next, add vanilla extract and whipping cream and mix through. Keep mixing at a higher speed for 2-3 minutes until you reach the consistency you desire. Spread the cream on one side of a cookie and place another cookie on top.

Notes

This recipe made 7 very LARGE cookie sandwiches. You can easily make these much smaller. Cookies should be stored in the refrigerator. Let them set out for an hour or so before serving.
