new old-fashion oatmeal sandwich cookies

I saw this recipe on another blog and I just had to try it. Handyman was out town, the kids in bed, the kitchen was clean, and I without any book to read. So what else to do? Bake, of course. And good thing, because the next day one of my friends was sick and this was the perfect dessert to go with the chili and cornbread dinner that I took her.

Let's face it, I didn't want these sweet little treasures sitting around my house -my little one ate one after lunch and then I packed up the rest. I love baking for other people!
