Apple Pie Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies

Shares 297

The baking season is gearing up!  Are you ready?

I love baking (and eating too), so I was really excited to get to try out Duncan Hines new Frosting Creations.  They’ve got quite a few flavors, including 4 new seasonal frosting tastes.  Our favorite so far, is the Gingerbread Frosting.  We ate most of the container with animal cookies.  Such an easy and tasty snack for fall.

Today, I’ve got a recipe to share with you that uses Apple Pie Frosting.  And I’ve got a fun giveaway from Duncan Hines and Wilton.  Keep reading to find out how to enter!

These Oatmeal Cookies start with a cake mix (you know I love cake mix), so they are really easy to make.  I spread part of them with the Apple Pie Frosting and part with Gingerbread Frosting.  Both were a hit with friends who were over for dinner on Friday night.

I’m really anxious to try the Peppermint Frosting with Devil’s Food cake.  There’s also a Pumpkin Spice flavor that would be good paired with chocolate.

Here’s what you’ll need to make Apple Pie Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies:
