Oatmeal and Guinness? Yes please...



Y’all, I had the best mini-dessert last night. Seriously. We were sitting in the neighborhood Irish pub, enjoying a pint of beer and watching college basketball (U-rah-rah, Wisconsin!!), when a friend of a friend stopped by with a plate of oatmeal butterscotch cookies. But these weren’t just your typical oatmeal cookies. They were whoopie pies with a creamy sweet filling apparently made with vanilla and Guinness, among other ingredients. Crikeys, they were delicious! Imagine the old-school Little Debbie oatmeal sandwich cookie, but ten times better.

Anyway, I’m hoping to get the recipe (so I can share it with everyone), but until then, enjoy National Oatmeal Cookie Day today with these wonderful sucralose-sweetened recipes.

P.S. Hope you all had a wonderful – and safe – St. Patrick’s Day!
