So here I am back from vacation, trying to lose a few pounds and I decide to make cookies. What a fool am I. I was totally craving these Oatmeal cream pies from Sept Everyday Food though. I love oatmeal cookies. And the thought of them as a sandwich cookie with cream in between – well, there was no stopping me.
The cookies were easy to make. I omitted the raisins. You bake until they are set at the edge and soft in the center. Mine all ran together on the baking sheet so I ended up with cookies with somewhat square edges since I had to cut them. I was happy with the cookies (although I would not make them as big as Martha says – they were too big – I would cut the size in half).
On to the cream filling. It’s made with cream cheese and powdered sugar. Not exactly what I had in mind. And I didn’t really care for it unfortunately. I was imagining fluffy creamy filling – more sugary than cheesy. Oh well. The cookies ended up ok, but I sent them off to Mr. MarthaAndMe’s office. I would not make this again unless I came up with a different filling. And then I think I might think of a way to make the cookies thicker and smaller. I’m not going to include the recipe here because honestly, I wouldn’t recommend it. Sorry, Martha.
