These look SUPER yummy!! When I'm feeling a little more ambitious, and confident, I will try to make them for sure.

These are another favorite of mine...and everyone else. In fact, one of my friends at work requested this cookie specifically for her birthday party. Once you've got the stuffing technique down, a world of cookie possibilities opens up.


Hi, I just came from Martha's site where I saw your cookie entry. Super excited to make them! Can you tell me if I need to let the 2 sticks of butter sit to room temp before creaming them? And thanks for providing the stuffing process on youtube, very helpful!


Oatmeal Cookie Guy

Thanks, Amelia. I usually let the butter set on the counter for 15-20 minutes before I cream it and the sugar together. This allows the butter to soften up a little...the butter shouldn't be super soft or melty.


Hi Greg, I made these babies today; so delicious! I ate 3 at one sitting, no kidding! My 16-month-old ate 1 jumbo at a go and still wanted more. Your blog's going on my fave list, so glad I saw your entry on Martha's site. Next up... your Florida Cookies!

Thanks, Amelia! So glad you and your son liked them.

I made these and blogged about them! I will be making them again!


My boyfriend and I made these last night....they are amazing! The dough wasn't as firm as yours so we put it in the freezer, and we had to bake them for longer than 12 minutes, but they turned out great! Definitely one of my favs.


You are truly the cookie KING!!!!!!!!!!! These cookies are the bomb.
Everyone I gave them to said they were the best cookies they ever had. So thank you for your creativity.

Thanks, Marguerite! :-)

Thanks, Em. :-)


I love these, and so did everyone at work! I'm always looking for good cookies to send to my son in college. Can these be mailed, or do they need to be refrigerated?

Oatmeal Cookie Guy

Thanks, Linda! You should serve these the same way way you'd serve a cheesecake. But the leftovers, if there are any, should be stored in the fridge. I'll do some research about the safety of leaving the cream cheese filling unrefrigerated for the duration of a mailing and post my findings.

Oatmeal Cookie Guy

Hi again, Linda. The Food Safety and Inspection Service, a department within the U.S. Department of Agriculture, states that cream cheese (and, by extension, cream cheese-filled products) should be shipped refrigerated and kept cold. Check out the "Mail Order Food Safety Chart" on this page (cream cheese is about halfway down):

probably one of THE BEST oatmeal cookie recipes i've ever tried!!! these are amazing! they're like an oatmeal, graham, cream cheese, cinnamony delight! chewy, crunchy, simply perfect cookies. Mrs. Field's has NOTHING on these babies.

Oatmeal Cookie Guy

Wow! Thanks, Bird. I think I'm going to print out your comment and post it next to my Kitchen Aid. :-)


Hello from far away!

Tried these cookies yesterday but I added lemon to the filling and a tiny pinch of nutmeg to the crust. Also I needed a lot more of the filling, I think half the recipe again.

My bowl was too little, too and when I mixed all the ingredients together I made a biiiiiiig mess in my kitchen... but my friend cleaned because he was too stupid to fill the cookies ...;)

Nevertheless: They are sooooo delicious!! I would be very happy if you allow me to translate the recipe into German and post it on my blog (needless to say that I would link to your site). In exchange I would like to offer you MY best cookie-recipe. No oatmeal in it, but they're truly delicious too ;).


These are amazing! A co-worker made me a batch, and I can't wait to make some myself.

How many cookies does this recipe make?

Oatmeal Cookie Guy

Hi Caitlin,

This recipe makes about 5 dozen cookies.


So, how much cinnamon is in this recipe? As it is now, there are 2 tablespoons. Thanks!
