Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookie recipe. A recipe for Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies. I feel like its only fitting for me to give you another cat video. So I will start this post with a Maru video. If you don’t know Maru, you should, and why don’t you? Do you not you tube cat videos when you are in bed and feel alone? In an attempt to connect the weird Zoom In Maru video with this post, I have provided you with a picture of one of these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookie ‘zoomed in.’ Clever. Yea, I know. Anyway, why is everything in sandwich form so much better? Have you ever put spaghetti in between two pieces of garlic bread? I have, its better than eating them separate.

    Oh yum! If I wasn’t being held down by dissertation work I would be strapping on my boots and hitting the store to pick up ingredients for those!

    I passionately agree that foods become more delicious when placed on bread. If served a fried egg and toast, I place the egg upon the bread, break the runny yolk, and promptly discard my fork! The whole is much greater than the sum of its parts! : )

    I appreciate that you did not succumb and try to pass these off as whoopee pies…I hate the name and the concept of a cakecookie. Much appreciated

    HAHAHAHA!!! I thought that picture was an accident. My fav part of that video is when it zooms in on his cat toes. I effing LOVE cat toes. WHY?! That’s weird.

      cat toes are AWESOME. My mom used to get those rubber tips for our cat Thomasina. She had orange & black ones for halloween one year. True story.

      • Kasey Not Specified Not Specified

        You had a cat named Thomasina? With Halloween-themed rubber tips? That is absolutely amazing. In other news, I totally want some of these cookies.

    Your comment about spaghetti in between garlic bread – I first saw that at a Japanese grocery store and it is really good! More sandwichy items please!

    • ayako. Not Specified Not Specified

      I was just about to post a comment about one of my favorite Japanese bakery delights! Most commonly, you find “yakisoba pan” – yakisoba noodles (stir-fried with veggies and everything) sandwiched in a butter roll – at most bakeries in Japan. Save for the ones trying to go the “fancy European-style” route. ;) Japanese baked goods are a major vice whenever I go back there… Well, food, in general, is a major vice. Hah!

        I’ve had that!….and LOVED it, then started feeling guilty about loving it so much, then decided it was okay to love it so much! The End :)

    I think you are right – EVERYTHING tastes better in a sandwich. What do I look forward to about Christmas dinner most? The turkey, ham and cranberry sauce sandwiches afterwards!

    Just found your blog. Delicious and lovely. I must say nothing beats a good sandwich!

    Everything about these is lovely. I’m not a fan of sandwich cookies usually, but you may have changed me here!

    That looks so amazing! Love it!

    These cookies are ripped straight from my childhood. My mom must have thought the oatmeal outdid the lust for sugar in the cookies.

    My joints feel better after watching the Maru toe yoga workout! That guy?gal will never have arthritis!

    The cookies look delectable too!

    These are absolutely ADORABLE! I used to love those hostess oatmeal creme pies when I was little — I bet these taste like that …. ONLY SO MUCH BETTER! I’m definitely going to have to try these! YUMMY.

    • Teri Lyn Fisher Not Specified Not Specified

      YES! I used to eat those also. So many in fact, I just can’t even think about eating another one. These had the addition of chocolate chips though, so if you can always omit that so its more like the hostess ones. :)

    These sound so delicious. I can’t wait to try them!

    I just made a batch of these because I promised the students in the Cooking Club that I would bring them for their fundraiser. Of course, I tasted one before packing them up (it would have been irresponsible not to…what kind of Head of School would I be?!), and my gods, they are awesome!!! Here’s the thing: the recipe for the filling made waaaaaaaaay more than I needed for one batch of the cookies. Solution? Make two more batches of cookies, of course! Oh, and I used mini chocolate chips because that is what I had on hand, and they were quite cute and proportional. Rock on, Teri and Jenny.
