I received a flier in the mail today for another Taste Of Home cookbook entitled THE ULTIMATE COOKIE COLLECTION. Lucky me....there are 2 free recipes. Here is one of them.

I have been making these cookies for years after finding the recipe in one of my Taste of Home Magazines. They remind us a lot of the "Little Debbie" sandwich cookies, except better. My family is very excited when they come home to a batch of these cookies.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and brown sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla. Combine the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and nutmeg; add to creamed mixture. Stir in oats.
  3. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto lightly greased baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  4. For filling: in a mixing bowl, cream the first three ingredients. Add enough milk to achieve spreading consistency. Spread filling on the bottom half of the cookies; top with remaining cookies.
