On any given day The Treats Truck has all sorts of cookies on offer but these Caramel Crème Sandwiches might very well be the best of the bunch. Why do we prefer these to these to all of the other very tasty offerings at Kim Ima's mobile sweet shop? The answer is simple: browned buttercream.
'The Treats Truck Baking Book' on Serious Eats
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.
The next stop on our month long cookie baking adventure is the Treats Truck, a New York-based food truck that roams city streets doling out brownies, cupcakes, cakes, bars, and of course, cookies. It's pretty much impossible not to smile when you see the Treats Truck because it inevitably means a mid-afternoon snack or some sort of sweet pick-me-up like a handheld Strawberry Jr. Pie, an Oatmeal Creamwich, or a festively iced Sugar Dot Cookie.
