Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Sandwiches

2 sticks unsalted butter, softened

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 tablespoon pure vanilla

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 cup rolled oats

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon kosher salt

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 sticks, unsalted butter, softened

3 to 4 cups powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 teaspoons milk or heavy cream

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a baking sheet with a silpat liner or parchment paper.

2. Cream your butter and sugars into a stand or electric mixer until well combined. Add eggs and vanilla mixing until well combined.

3. Place flour, oats, baking soda and salt into a large bowl. Mix to combine. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips, mixing until just combined. Scoop dough onto prepared baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Press cookies down to about 1/2 inch before baking. Bake for 11-14 minutes, until edges start to turn golden brown. Let cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to cooling rack. Let cool completely.

4. Place softened butter into stand or electric mixer beating until smooth. Slowly add powdered sugar until thick and creamy. Add vanilla and milk until smooth and creamy. You can add more powdered sugar for a thicker frosting if desired. Frost half of your cookies with frosting on the flat/bottom side. Dip edges in your favorite sprinkles and top with another cookie to create the sandwich. Enjoy with a cold glass of milk.
