Old Fashioned Apple Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

“My country ’tis of thee, sweet land of…” cookies? It’s July peoples and the time when we celebrate our nation’s birthday and freedom for all. And it’s another month to show off a new cookie recipe for Fill the Cookie Jar.

Patriotic cookies that is. And what’s more patriotic than American Apple Pie. In fact, just today one of our vendors at work  brought us a fresh apple pie for the holiday. Guess I’m not the only one who relates apples to July 4th.

And comfort. I always think comfort when it comes to having a bit of freedom. So what’s more comforting that a Soft Oatmeal Sandwich Cookie!?! Think those Little Debbie’s packaged oatmeal sandwich cookies, but with a twist of apple goodness. Yep-yummy.

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375F.

Process the corn flakes and coconut in a food processor until they reach a fine crumb.

The corn flakes and coconut were added for my daddy. He loves a certain fast food oatmeal cookie and in these delicious cookies, they hide corn flakes and coconut. Needless to say, he loved these cookies!

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, oats and corn flake and coconut mixture.

    Please don’t think bad of me, but I have never had the Little Debbie oatmeal cookies! That is almost un-American?! This do sound delicious, and I wish I had one to enjoy for dessert! The filling has to be outstanding with how you have jazzed it up!
