“If you want something impressive and addictive to take to a bake sale, holiday event, or any kind of social gathering, this cookie is it. Seriously the best thing I've baked in a long time. Taste better than store-bought little debbie cream pies, and leave you wanting more and more and more! Creamy peanut butter and chewy oats together in a cookie sandwich filled with sweet marshmallow creme with a touch salt makes it really stand out in a crowd. I got the recipe from Better Homes and Gardens 100 Best Cookies magazine, and made them for the Holiday Cookie Swap 2011.”
13 sandwich cookies
