The only thing that beats an oatmeal cookie is an oatmeal cookie sandwich stuffed with Amarula frosting! These are super easy to make, look impressive, and are oh-so-delicious!
Heritage Day is around the corner and for me, that means a little extra time spent with the family and a whole lotta Amarula!
These sandwich cookies are the perfect treat to celebrate South Africa and Amarula. They are easy to make and really delicious.
I love these days because the weather is just starting to warm up, everyone is a little more relaxed and I get to spend the day cooking up a storm with my family. There is honestly nothing better than a warm day in the kitchen, cocktail in hand (check out my fave Gin Cocktail) catching up with everyone's lives.
You can store the baked cookies in an airtight container or bag. The cookies can be stored at room temperature for 7 - 10 days. Or you can store the sealed cookie dough in the fridge for up to four days.
Alternatively, you can freeze the cookie dough to bake at a later stage. You can store the dough in the freezer for up to three months.
This Heritage Day one of the recipes I'll be baking is a batch of these Amarula Oatmeal Cookie Sandwiches. I'll be honest, I haven't made cookie sandwiches many times, but after making those ganache-filled cookie sandwiches I was hooked.
This easy cookie sandwich recipe is just as delicious. The combination of the oatmeal texture with the sweet Amarula frosting is simply to die for! You'll be eating the whole batch of these Amarula Oatmeal Cookie Sandwiches in one day, no questions asked.
I'd love to hear what you're doing for Heritage Day this year, so make sure to pop over to my Instagram to share your plans! I hope you love this recipe for Oatmeal Cookie Sandwiches as much as I do.
