These are even better than a Little Debbie oatmeal cookie
Top Review by Nikoma
I can't believe how well these turned out! They're very close to the ones I've picked up at road stands in "Dutch Country".I WILL cut down on the brown sugar in the recipe next time though, just a little to sweet paired with the filling. I made my cookies bigger then stated and they were done at 10-12 minutes. And I added raisins to the dough as well. And PLEASE use this filling! The egg white is NOT going to hurt you, and though the filling initially seems a little thin and runny is stiffens after sitting for a little while! Thanks Grandma2669!
