Chewy oatmeal cookies filled with a buttery, fluffy maple buttercream are a fall favorite.

I know oatmeal cookies are often pushed to the shadows by the ever-popular chocolate chip, but for me oatmeal cookies have always been a bit special.

I have so many lovely childhood memories attached to them. They were my dad’s favorite cookie, and every harvest we would make batches to be sent to the field in our lunches.

I still remember sitting in the big combine with my dad, watching the grain pour into the tank, and eating oatmeal cookies. Eating an oatmeal cookie still brings back vivid memories of harvest for me.

Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies

Since there are probably about 30 million recipes floating around the internet already for regular oatmeal cookies, I decided to add an extra bit of fall flair by layering them with maple buttercream to make them sandwich cookies.

Besides, sandwich cookies are so much fun to eat! First of all, because you get to eat two cookies at once, and second because you get to eat frosting with them!

Oatmeal Sandwich Cookie Recipe

Cookie Ingredients

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup dark brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup all purpose flour

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 and 2/3 cups rolled oats

Maple Buttercream Ingredients

¼ cup butter, softened

2 T Maple Syrup

1 cup powdered sugar

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and white and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  2. Combine the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Stir the flour mixture into the butter and sugar bowl. Gently stir in rolled oats.
  3. Roll the dough into balls and chill for about 30 min. Preheat the oven to 325 F. Bake the cookies for 10-11 min or until lightly browned. Do not over bake. Let cool on the cookie sheets for a few minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. To make the buttercream, beat the butter with a mixer on high speed for 2-3 minutes. Add the maple syrup and powdered sugar and beat until smooth.
  5. To assemble the cookies spread a tablespoon or two of buttercream on the back of a cookie. Top with another cookie. Makes about 10 Sandwiches.
