Blackberry Jam Oatmeal Cookie Sandwiches

I’m kind of wishy-washy when it comes to oatmeal cookies – sometimes I like them crispy and sometimes I like them chewy. So these tend to be my favorites because they are a perfect mix of both.

Add a layer of blackberry jam (or any other jam that you enjoy) in between and that just ups the deliciousness. If you want really sinful cookies, you could replace the jam layer with a layer of melted chocolate.


Blackberry Jam Oatmeal Cookie Sandwiches

  • 1 3/4 c. flour
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1 c. butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 1/4 c. brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 t. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 c. quick oats
  • Blackberry jam (or your favorite jam or melted chocolate)

1. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

2. Mix together butter and sugars until creamed. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well.

3. Slowly mix in the flour mixture, then stir in the oats. Using a tablespoon of dough per cookie, roll into balls.

4. Place balls of cookie dough on aluminum foil or parchment paper lined cookie sheets and bake at 375 degrees for 6 minutes. Rearrange the cookie sheets in the oven so that the cookies from the bottom rack are on top and vice versa. Bake another 5-8 minutes, until lightly browned and firm.

5. Cool cookies on cookie sheets then peel off aluminum foil or parchment paper. Spread a thin layer of jam on the bottom of one cookie and top with another. Repeat until all cookies are used.

  3. Thank you for posting this recipe! My sister and I are looking forward to making it tomorrow for a church potluck. πŸ™‚

  4. I made these oatmeal cookies and made ice cream sandwiches instead using butter pecan ice cream. They were a huge hit!!

  5. Whenever I add jam to any recipe such as this one, I add a tbsp of lemon juice to the jam (for every cup of jam). It cuts the sweetness and brings out the berry flavour like nothing else can!

  6. I just made these. But I added butterscotch chips to them. So delicious. You weren’t lying when you said they are chewy and crispy ! They expanded bigger then I thought they would , but that is totally fine. thank you for sharing this recipe.

  7. I just made these delicious cookies.
    I flattened them, then baked them for approx. 7 min. (on a silicone sheet). You may need to experiement with your oven and bakeware.

    I made them with Eldeberry Jam, Strawberry Jelly and melted chocolate.

    A recipe worth keeping! Enjoy!

    PS- This recipe made 60 cookies (30 sandwiches)
