My kids and I purchased some cream-filled oatmeal cookies at a local bakry and are trying to recreate the recipe. I have actually been trying for months and am just not getting it. The other day I picked up a box of mini-cookies there and it had all of the ingredients listed, since then I've made several batches mixing the amounts but still no luck. I either have them too thin, too sweet, too floury...too something
Their cookes are not too sweet and are thick and soft yet firm. Not crispy at all. The color is a light brown (wish I had a pic to post that would make a big difference). Also there isn't a lot of raisins or oatmeal in their cookie. In fact the raisins appear to be chopped.
Another thing I'll point out, when you look at their cookie you can almost see a handprint on some of them. That tells me they're firm and moldable before you bake them. The closest to this texture that I've found is from the Karo website.
This is a huge challenge for us and hope some of you pro's can help us figure it out. I would even be willing to send someone a cookie in the mail to taste what they taste like (warning though...you'll want more...they are the best I've ever had and unlike any I've ever tasted). There is not a recipe on the web to match these (I've searched for months).
So here we go this is what's on the outside of the container, any help you can give on the amount of each ingredient would be wonderful:
Bread flour, salt, whole eggs, raisins, oats, brown sugar, veg.shortening, corn syrup, baking soda. *may contain traces of nuts & soy*
