When National Oatmeal Month collides with National Buttercrunch Day…the world is a better place. This is my last full day visiting with my family in CT. During coffee & pj time this morning, my sister Sarah and my niece Maya and I came to a unanimous decision. Buttercrunch Ice Cream sandwiched between Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies could quite possibly be phenomenal.
Flash forward, cookies are out of the oven….they are phenomenal.
We tweaked our recipe and came up with the perfect combination of oatmeal and butterscotch and added a pinch of nutmeg for the right nuance of flavors. These Buttercrunch Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches made quite a tasty afternoon snack!!
