I used 1 cup butter, 2tsp vanilla, 4 cups confectioner's sugar for the filling and still had a lot of filling leftover. Don't use raw eggs in recipes as it can cause food poisoning.

Very Good! This is just my own little by accident tip. I made these on a hot day and the icing started to melt between the cookies so I put the cookies in the freezer. I wrapped each cookie in s...

Excellent! I did think however they are way too rich. I am going to try to cut down on the shortening the next time maybe by a few tablespons. Definatley give these a try.

Cookies were soft and delicious (and stayed soft!), the filling was the crowning glory, but you need to have a sweet tooth. MMMMMM! Will definitely make again!

I loved these, they remind of "Little Debbies" oatmeal cookies with a homemade taste. I under bake my cookies and flatten them a little with a fork so they are really chewy. Great recipe!

The oatmeal "pies" are just great oatmeal cookies themselves... but if you're looking for something really sweet then add the filling and sandwich them. They're great either way!!

these were really good. I would recommend making them on the smaller side as I made very large ones and some of them broke before we could make them into sandwiches.

Wow - these cookies are amazing. I would recommend that you unbake them slightly for a very soft and chewy cookie. The vanilla filling is perfect, not overly sweet. A definite crowd pleaser. ...
