for 8 sandwiches


  • 1 cup (220 g) light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup (230 g) butter, melted
  • ⅓ cup (105 g) molasses
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups (250 g) flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (200 g) old-fashioned oat, or quick oat


  • ½ cup (115 g) butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon milk, or heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (85 g) marshmallow fluff


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF (180ºC).
  2. In a large bowl, mix the butter and brown sugar until well combined.
  3. Add the molasses, vanilla, and eggs, and whisk thoroughly.
  4. Sift in the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Mix until just combined.
  5. Add the oats and mix until incorporated. Be careful not to overmix the batter or it might result in tougher cookies.
  6. Using an ice cream scoop (or about 2 tablespoons), scoop out cookies onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, leaving about 3 inches (8 cm) between each one.
  7. Bake for 7-9 minutes. The cookies will still be very soft, so be sure to let them cool thoroughly.
  8. While cooling, make the filling by beating the butter, milk, vanilla, and marshmallow fluff until well combined.
  9. Once the cookies are cooled, put a spoonful of the filling on one cookie and sandwich with another. Repeat until all the sandwiches are made.
  10. Enjoy!
