  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 cup organic sugar or Sucanat (can use granulated sugar)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (can use unbleached white flour instead)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter until creamy. Add sugars and beat until fluffy – about 3 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla.

3. Add dry ingredients except raisins and nuts and mix well.

4. Stir in raisins and nuts.

5. Spoon large tablespoons of dough onto greased cookie sheets.

6. Bake until edges of cookies turn golden brown, about 10-12 minutes. Cool 1-3 minutes on cookie sheet, then remove carefully with a metal spatula to a cooling rack. Cool completely. These cookies will be pretty soft until they are cooled.

Creamy Filling

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2-4 teaspoons milk

Beat all ingredients on high with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add enough milk to get desired consistency. Spread creamy filling inside of two cooled oatmeal raisin cookies. Layer in a covered container with wax paper between layers to keep them from sticking together. Store tightly covered.

These are SO good and SO sweet! Enjoy!

  1. Thanks Sheri, but just to clarify, you only pack a little and not firmly like with brown sugar?
    1. Yes Karin. Actually when I measure out my flour, I just round the measuring cup. Instead of leveling it off, I just get a heaping cup full. But to pack, I don't push it down hard like I do brown sugar. Just pack lightly, or shake it to settle the flour. I really just round off my measuring cups though. If the recipe calls for 1 cup, I just scoop out a heaping cupful of flour. I hope that helps!
  2. Sheri, I have a question for you not directly related to this particular recipe. When you measure your home ground wheat flour for a recipe, do you measure it loosely like with store bought flour, or like Marilyn Moll teaches to firmly pack it like with traditional brown sugar? Thanks!
    1. Hi Karin, Yes you do pack the fresh ground flour a little. Because it is freshly ground, there is more air in it, so packing it a little is necessary. Thanks for asking!
  3. Just wanted you to know I made these for my husband and he LOVES them! Thanks so much for the recipe. I've been wanting to try these for some time.
    1. Hi Jennifer! I'm so glad your husband loved these cookies. They are so good! I bet you could make them and freeze individual cookies in sandwich bags for a yummy snack on the go! Happy baking!
  4. OK, Hannah just finished making these - I am SO glad I insisted on a double batch. YUM!!! These are absolutely incredible, and we really, really enjoyed them. I have one very anti-raisin child, so Hannah just scooped out a few for him before mixing in the raisins at the end. He doesn't usually even like oatmeal cookies without raisins, but he loved these! And the few that I have that really aren't crazy about raisins loved them as well, with no attempt at picking out the raisins or anything. :-) I have loved every single recipe of yours that I've ever tried, and you have got a real winner here again - this one is going into my recipe binder for sure. Blessings, Kate
    1. Hi Kate, You made my day! I'm so glad you and the kids liked the Oatmeal Cream Pies. Maybe I need to make another batch for my kiddos :). I'm glad you have liked my recipes too...it is so much fun sharing with others and helping you all add to your Recipe Books! The only problem is that I had to move all my dessert recipes to a binder all by itself :(....I guess that means I like to make desserts! Oh well... Have a wonderful evening! Hugs, Sheri
  5. Rats. I tried that and it didn't work- still comes up with your sourdough posts as the most recent. I'm using the Yahoo reader so your posts show up on my home page of my computer. I went ahead and left it up there in the hopes that it will work itself out eventually, but I also subscribed to get posts by email to be sure I don't miss one!!! Blessings, Kate
  6. Oh, wow. I just found Hannah's home ec project for today LOL. Cannot WAIT to try these - they look so good. I've been meaning to email you, Sheri - your posts aren't showing up in my RSS feed anymore. The last ones are all from at least a month ago. We've been crazy busy and I hadn't really noticed - then today it hit me and I was worried that something was wrong. I came here to email you and check in you. :-) I was SO relieved that you guys were all OK, but thought you might want to check/reset your RSS feed. If it seems OK on your end, maybe I can try unsubscribing and re-subscribing. :-) Blessings, Kate
    1. Hi Kate...I'm not sure why you have not been getting the RSS feed. It has been coming through for me..maybe try unsubscribing and re-subscribing. Let me know if you still aren't getting it and I'll look into it further! Have fun making the cookies! They are SO good!
