This week's featured flavor is absolutely one of my top choices. I'm sure as I write about a different Muddy's treat every week, it sounds like every one of our products is one of my top choices ... and don't get me wrong, the list is long. My sweet tooth helps me in this job, A LOT. BUT, oh Oatmeal Cream Pies, I could eat you every day and still not have enough of you in my life. And it sounds like I'm not the only one: Muddy's Oatmeal Cream Pies recently made the list of "The 19 Best Cookies in America" on the blog PureWow!
As a former addict to the supermarket variety, I could go on for days about these simple but divine cookie sandwiches. I opted, however, to get a word from the baker responsible for making these treats, the lovely Leah! She's very proud to note that these are her actual hands in her fancy pink gloves and is available to talk, should any hand model scouts be reading this.
But anyway, back to those cookies!
They start with two "soft, cinnamony cookies," as Leah calls them, made from scratch in our kitchen and allowed to rest and cool. Our bakers (today, it's Leah!) then add a healthy dollop of freshly made vanilla cream ...
... and top that cream with yet another oatmeal cookie. Leah's favorite part is the filling, which, I agree with her, is "perfect." "The filling is creamy and fluffy, not too sweet, and sooooooo buttery," she says.
Leah gives the cookis one final squish of the cookies to spread the icing just right. It's incredibly satisfying to watch, but not as satisfying as eating one of these with a cup of coffee at one of our shops. Or in the comfort of your home, if that's your thing. You can find them in the case at either of our shops all week, or you can order a dozen HERE!
