Their love was mean to be. They met in a kitchen. Raspberry and oatmeal. People often mistook them for a famous couple found on grocery store shelves.
To make your own love story, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together 1 1/2 cups butter (3 sticks), 1 cup of brown sugar & 1/4 cup of white sugar. Then add 1 egg, 2 tablespoons of honey, 3 cups of oatmeal, 2 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda and 1 teaspoon of salt. Mix well.
Using a cookie scoop, drop cookie dough onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
Be sure to leave space in between for cookies to spread.
Lightly push a finger into each cookie middle to make room for the raspberry jam. Only push about half way into the cookie at most. If you push down too far, you will have a hole where the jam would have been after cookies are baked.
Using a decorating bag, squeeze about 3/4 teaspoon into each middle.
Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
Carefully slide parchment paper onto the counter to allow cookies to cool.
Leaving them on cookie sheet might cause them to continue to cook too long & they’re too fragile while hot to remove with a spatula.
This recipe makes 40 cookies. Some for you and some for a friend.
Sweet and chewy. Love at first bite.
