Perfect Oatmeal Cookies Twist

Remember the Perfect Oatmeal Cookies and the recipe I posted for them some time back?  No?  You missed that post?!   ~faint~ (hello, email sign-up)

Here’s the LINK for the recipe and a visual refresher:

Perfect Oatmeal Cookies

Mmmm, look at those oatmeal cookie badboys.  So delicious.

Yes, they are perfect just the way they are, but….

…I went and fiddled with them.

Prepare yourself.  No really.  Sit down.  Center yourself.  Try not to lick the screen.

Make Perfect Oatmeal Cookies with a Twist and you'll become the Belle of the Cookie Ball. Really.

That’s right, I filled them.  I filled them with delicious vanilla buttercream and then, just for giggles, I grabbed a container of red sprinkles and gave them a good roll.

It got me to thinking that when you’re strapped for a dessert with holiday-specific flair, or kiddo’s birthday party, but you don’t want to go crazy cause you’re insanely busy, simply make some cookies, fill ’em to the brim with buttercream and roll them in holiday/birthday-color-coordinated sprinkles.

Or not.  As the cookie on the left was just as delicious and fun to eat as the one on the right.  Well, maybe not just as fun, but you get the idea.

When Husband saw what I had done with the simple cookies, his eyes lit up.  That for me?  He’s a grown man, people.  Not particularly sprinkle-driven. He wanted that cookie.

As he ate it, the sweet song of satisfaction hung in the air: mmmmmmm…mmmmm He even licked his finger to catch the errant plate sprinkles.  Don’t know if I could have gotten a better review.

People will think you spent hours on them (but, you’ll know the truth).  They’ll likely turn up on your most requested list.  You’ll become the Belle of the Cookie Ball. Your teeth will be whiter, your bank account fatter, and your children will always remember their manners!

Make Perfect Oatmeal Cookies with a Twist and you'll become the Belle of the Cookie Ball. Really.Not really.  But, they’re really good and fun.

I’m here to make your life easier, my babies.

Happy Baking!

  1. Oh my goodness, those look good! My youngest prefers oatmeal cookies to chocolate chip. I’ll have to try these for him. And then buttercream in the middle? I think I’m in love!

  2. Oh wow those look good. I’d happily skip the bagel I’m eating right now to eat a couple of those!

  3. I was just writing about cookies myself! If you read my post, you probably won’t agree with me! 😉 I personally am a cookie lover and after reading your post here decided I should give homemade oatmeal cookies a try, because lately we’ve been stuck in a chocolate chip habit. But at least with oatmeal I can make some claims to healthy ingredients, right! Have you ever put quinoa in a cookie? Hmmm…
    These do look delicious and I think I’ll be putting some in the oven soon. Thanks for tempting me!

      I read your post and had no issue with your suggestion. We have always been healthy eaters in our family and we promoted healthy eating for our son, along with physical activities, so when we did have sweets there was balance. These are great oatmeal cookies to try!

  4. Oh yum yum, I love oatmeal cookies and these sound delish (I went back and looked at the recipe)
    And with the filling and sprinkles, they are fun to boot 😀

  5. These look delicious! I think I will make them and then put them in the freezer. I don’t know what it is about cookies, but I seem to like them most when either right out of the oven or right out of the freezer. I am thinking they would taste like an ice cream sandwich if frozen (but better) 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!

    • Mrs. Tucker says

      OMGosh! I’m a frozen cookie gal too! Either straight from the oven hot, or frozen. Otherwise, I’ll pass. I have constructed these with ice cream as well…DELISH!

  6. YUM!! What a great idea! I need to try this.

  7. Should have read the part sooner about not licking the screen. Looks fabulous!

  8. Such a small change with such pop, this would be perfect for a party like you said!

  9. Oh buttercream…how you fill my life with sweetness… 🙂

  10. Yes, please! Twice! Thanks for sharing…

  11. I plan to do these cookies later for the weekend. Oatmeal cookies bring back memories of helping
    to make treats as a child although sprinkles were limited to holiday times. Thanks for the new
    idea to “dress up” a treat.

  12. Kaye Swain says

    Oh yummy! And fun! Bet my grandkids would have fun making those! Thanks for sharing this. 🙂

  13. I love love love love LOVE oatmeal cookies! No cream needed. Just give me those cookies 🙂

  14. Oh my, this looks delicious!

    I would be honored to have you hop over and share with us at something fabulous Wednesday!

  15. I want that now too!

  16. One of my favorites…now I have to try this! Thank you for sharing at One More Time Events.


  1. […] I love them all. I love cookies! Yet, if I was forced to pick one, it would probably be these oatmeal cookies with dried […]
