Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine butter, brown sugar, and white sugar in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until smooth creamy, 3 to 5 minutes. Beat in egg, 1 tablespoon milk, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

  • Mix oats, flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl. Beat into the creamed butter mixture on low speed. Fold in chocolate chips using a rubber spatula.

  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate dough until firm enough to scoop, at least 1 hour.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Scoop small balls of dough onto the lined baking sheets using a small cookie scoop.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden, about 10 minutes. Let cookies sit on the baking sheets for 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Combine cream cheese and vegetable shortening in a bowl; beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Add marshmallow cream, 2 teaspoons milk, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract; mix well. Beat in confectioners' sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, until filling reaches a thick consistency.

  • Scoop some of the filling onto the flat side of 1 cookie using the cookie scoop. Press another cookie on top to sandwich the filling. Repeat with remaining cookies and filling.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute raisins for the chocolate chips if preferred.

You can use butter or margarine in place of the vegetable shortening, but you'll sacrifice the bright white color of the filling.

I will be rating only the cookie part as I did not make the filling. The taste was great. The first time I followed the directions exactly. they came out flat very crunchy and fell apart. I even froze them before I baked them. The second time I made the change of adding a total of 2 cups oatmeal and 1 cup flour. they were great!! Read More

Over all a very good cookie i gave it four stars only because for me they are WAY too sweet. if you have a sweet tooth these are definitely for you. i didn't chill the dough so i came away with a thin crisp yet chewy cookie. just the way i like them! The cookie itself would be very good on it's own they're quite delicious. The filling is good too but just way too sweet for me but i know people who will just LOVE these! Thanks for the recipe!
