Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Sandwiches

DSCF3503 Edited Sometimes I’m lazy I have to be creative with what I already have in the kitchen. Here, we had left over oatmeal raisin cookies we made a couple days ago and extra vanilla buttercream frosting. The cookies are little smaller than usual, so making little sandwiches sounded perfect! Those cookies had it coming!

In case you were wondering what my hand looks like…
DSCF3504 EditedOh! And Happy Halloween!
DSCF3499 Edited Top one cookie with frosting…
DSCF3501 EditedPlop another cookie on top of that! Ta-Dah!
DSCF3502 Edited DSCF3500 Edited I guess you could think of these as oatmeal creme pies, really. These have a sweet, creamy filling, generously sandwiched between two soft oatmeal raisin cookies. Mmm…

Surely to be a crowd-pleaser.
