Oatmeal Cookie Sandwiches

My husband's favorite cookies are homemade oreo's and oatmeal cookies. I decided to make his favorite oatmeal cookies into a sandwich cookie using cream cheese frosting. He loves them...and so does the rest of the family. I tried this using a couple different oatmeal cookie recipes and I think this one works the best because the cookies are soft and not too fluffy.

Oatmeal Cookie Dough

2 cups brown sugar
1 cup shortening
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
2 cups rolled oats
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup nuts (optional)

Cream sugar and shortening. Add eggs and milk; mix well. Add rolled oats and stir in. Sift together dry ingredients and mix in until smooth. Stir in nuts if using them. Form into balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.

Cream Cheese Frosting

1- 8 oz container cream cheese
3/4 cube of butter
1 pound powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Soften cream cheese and butter (but don't melt). Stir together. Add powdered sugar and vanilla and beat until smooth.

Frost the pan side of one cookie and place another cookie on top of it to make an oatmeal cookie sandwich.
