It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is OATMEAL CHOCOLATE SANDWICH COOKIES!
Oatmeal? Semisweet chocolate? There is no way this cookie doesn’t top the charts on deliciousness! They’re really not difficult to make and add that “something extra” to wow the neighborhood block party or show your family how much you love them.
I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
