A Cookie A Day: The Treats Truck's Oatmeal Jammys
Note: Welcome to our third annual Cookie Month! Every weekday in December we're going to be sharing a cookie recipe with all of you, just in time for the holidays. So let's get those ovens preheated and get baking!
Kim Ima, the mobile dessert visionary behind The Treats Truck Baking Book, calls the base for these Oatmeal Jammys "plain jane." They are oatmeal cookies in their purist form, all gooey and chewy with loads of brown sugar and no raisins or chocolate chips to distract from their oatmeal-y goodness. And honestly, they're pretty great on their own.
But if you want to dress up your plain-jane oatmeal cookies, a little blob of jam right in the center does the trick quite nicely. Just make a little divot with your thumb and fill it with any jam you please. As the cookie bake the jam makes its way down to the very bottom of the cookie, making a sweet looking and tasting cookie.
