Oatmeal Sandwiches

Modified from Martha Stewart Oatmeal Cream Pies

Makes 18 Sandwiches

  • Cookie Ingredients
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup dark-brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 T molasses
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup raisins
Cream salt, powder, soda, cinnamon, butter, and sugars until fluffy.  Beat in molasses, eggs one at a time, and vanilla.  Stir in flour, oats, and raisins.  Scoop 2 tablespoons of dough on prepared sheets.  Bake 11 minutes at 350F.  These will spread a lot.  Cool on racks.

3 T gelatin
1 1/2 c cool water, divided
3 c sugar
1/4 c corn syrup
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp almond extract

In a mixing bowl, combine 3/4 c water with gelatin.  Let sit for 5 minutes.  Meanwhile combine remaining water, sugar, syrup, and salt in a medium sized saucepan.  Heat until soft ball stage.  Using a mixer whisk attachment, beating on low speed, pour hot syrup mixture in a steady stream.  Raise speed to high and beat until fluffy and cool.  Beat in vanilla and almond extract.  Using a greased spoon, scoop two tablespoons onto cookies and sandwich together.

Wrap individually and freeze if you don't eat them all right away.  They're good frozen too.

You will have lots leftover.  I poured the extra in a greased 9" square pan.  Will use for marshmallows, later.
