I can remember when I discovered Miss Debbie's Oatmeal Cream Pies. Oh boy were they some good. It was in an American Grocery store and it was love at first bite. Two delicious flattish oatmeal cookies with a layer of marshmallow cream sandwiched in the centre. *slurp* I also liked their Star Crunch Cakes. I think most of them are available in Canada now, but when I first discovered them they were exotic to me!
I think it's fair to say I love oatmeal cookies. I have always loved oatmeal cookies. I think they are my favourite type of cookies, next to digestives, shortbreads . . . and maybe custard creams. Oh and Pirate Cookies. But then again Pirate Cookies are oatmeal cookies with a peanut butter filling.
These are not like Little Debbies . . . nor they like whoopie pies. These are lovely puffed oatmeal cookies, highly flavoured with ginger . . . extract, powdered and candied . . . crunchy on the outside and soft on the insides . . .
You could add nuts as well if you wanted to . . . but they are incredibly delicious without. Two of these oaty gingery biscuits, sandwiched together with a delectably deliciously moreish lime buttercream icing. I've never quite gotten into calling cookies biscuits . . . they have always been cookies to me. It is a real effort for me to call them biscuits, but I do try . . .
Ginger and Lime are a marriage made in heaven. Call them biscuits or call them cookies, whatever . . . these are heavenly bliss. One packs quite a mouthful. You may want to share . . . but then again . . . you may not. It all depends on how generous you are feeling.
