Beat butter and sugars at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add egg and vanilla, beating well.
Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a bowl, stirring well. Add oats; stir well. Add to butter mixture; stir until well blended. Drop by rounded tablespoons 2 inches apart onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes. Cool on pan 2 to 3 minutes. Remove cookies from pan; cool on wire racks.
Spread 1 tablespoon Cream Filling over each bottom side of half of cookies; top with remaining cookies, right side up.
I can promise you that the words "Cream Filling" were not in red several days ago, and you could not link from the black lettering. Searching the site for "Cream Filling" did not work, either. Apparently, the complaints DID work, since the link is now provided. Also, thanks to readers who posted the recipe for the filling before My Recipes did. Seems like reviewers on both sides were very upset about the whole issue. The degree of concern may be a little surprising, but there WAS an issue--it wasn't a lack of noticing a link.
BrinaBear I couldn't agree with you more I think more of the cookie dough ended up in my belly than the oven.This was a delicious and simple recipe. I made the cream filling for the cookies but decided I liked the cookies better without the cream filling. I left it on the side and those who wanted cream could put it on the cookies themselves. Very good recipe. I added walnuts because IMO oatmeal cookies are not oatmeal cookies w/o walnuts :)
UNBELIEVABLE! REALLY FOLKS???? Lets jump on the whining bandwagon rather than use our brains.. how IGNORANT can someone be. CLICK THE WORDS "CREAM FILLING" and WOW it links to the recipe. Why is this a hard concept? My 10 year old gets it. And even worse SOMEONE POSTED IT and your still b***hing.
