Recipe by Leslie in Texas
These remind me of the Girl Scout peanut butter sandwich cookies--they're wonderful and "healthy" too with the oat flour! This recipe comes from an old Quaker Oats recipe booklet that I've had for over 15 years.

we are a gluten free family, and this is one of the best cookie recipes we have had! My cookies came out a little soft, so perhaps needed a few more minutes in the oven. Loved by the children and adults in our family alike!
