Oatmeal cream cookies with walnuts and a glass of milk and a red plate

I am very thankful to be a guest blogger here at Princess Pinky Girl. If this is the first time you have visited her blog, you are in for a treat. My favorite things on her blog are the fantastic roundups she puts together. She finds the best ideas from all over Pinterest and the internet.

I am sharing with you today Oatmeal Cream Cookies. These oatmeal 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.

The original cookie recipe is from Susan Mallery’s Fools Gold Cookbook. I made these cookies after reviewing her cookbook. I am not kidding when I say they are the Best Oatmeal Toffee Cookies I have ever had. The first time I made them my family, including myself, almost ate all the dough before we could put the second batch in the oven. We love the oats with the toffee and pecans. 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. It is light and sweet and goes perfectly with these soft crunchy cookies.
