For the Cookies

  • 1 cup butter or vegetable shortening
  • 3 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats


  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4 Tablespoons milk
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable shortening


For the Cookies

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    Cream together shortening or butter, brown sugar, and eggs. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. A stand mixer works best, because the dough gets thick. Use a cookie scoop, or ice cream school if you want larger sandwiches, and place on cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with fingers.
    Bake for about 10 minutes.
    When cool, turn a cookie over and spread filling on the side that was on the pan when baking. Place a second cookie on top.

For the Filling

  • Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Add vanilla, milk, and 2 cups powdered sugar. Beat thoroughly and add the remaining 2 cups powdered sugar and the shortening. Beat until smooth and fluffy.
