Sea Salted Fluffernutter Filled Oatmeal Cookies

I do apologize for those of you who wanted this recipe sooner. Unfortunately writing a blog post and sharing the recipe has not been possible for the past couple of days. I had someone get frustrated with me for not posting it sooner.... It's a cookie recipe. You can live for 2 days without a cookie recipe. I had bigger fish to fry at the time. 

I feel silly worrying about trivial things such as timely blog posts, electricity, Internet, TV, and if we will have Halloween in our town tonight. The past 3 days has been nothing but bad luck for the East Coast. Especially those in New York and New Jersey. I have spent the past few days in my own little world only checking twitter and facebook on my phone occasionally thanks to the lack of cable, and in and out electricity. Finally our TV and Internet are back and I am in the loop as of to how devastating Hurricane Sandy really was.

Up here in New Hampshire, we had some minor flooding, trees down, hundreds of thousands of power outages, one death up in Lincoln due to a land slide. As horrible as that sounds. It is nothing compared to what some have experienced these past few days. This is unlike anything I have ever seen on the East Coast.

As I was hunkering down for the Storm on Sunday and Monday I whipped these cookies up as part of my Sandy survival kit. Because I know when a hurricane comes in to town there is a big chance I could be without power for days. So I will need unlimited amounts of wine and dozens of cookies.

Brown butter oatmeal cookies, filled with ooey gooey peanut butter and marshmallow fluff then topped with a pinch of sea salt.

If you find yourself about to be stuck inside for days thanks to the nasty weather.... I encourage you to make a batch of these cookies. They will add a little sweetness in to a yukky situation. I promise.

  6. I'm SO glad you're doing okay and that your power is back! The pictures we're seeing - crazy! I'm just so glad there was so much warning. LOVE the cookies, I want them now. :) Pinned!

  7. I'm glad you're safe. It puts everything into perspective, and helps us to be grateful for what we have. I just wish that appreciation lasted longer. It seems like as soon as everything gets cleaned up it's only a matter of minutes that people start to complain about stupid trivial things again. I wish there was something I could do from over here on the West Coast.

  8. WOW! You could survive anything with cookies like that. Brilliant idea!

  9. omg these look outrageously delicious!! i looooove the marshmallow center!!

  10. I'm glad you guys are ok! That being said, these cookies look absolutely incredible. But what I really love here is your photography!! So gorgeous! Seriously some of my favorites from you right here.

  13. Each time i tried your recipe it never disappoint me. Glad you guys are ok. :)

  14. I just decided to try this one on november 17th, cause my boyfriend's got to have a hard day at his mom's house and I think he would love to eat those, when he comes home.

    Thanks for the recipe!

  15. I am requesting these for when we hang out. LOL

  16. These cookies sound absolutely phenomenal!

  17. I made these. They are really delicious. Some of the Fluff seemed to get absorbed by the cookies. I think I would make these again but make the cookies regular flat cookies, cool them and then spread some Fluff between them to make a sandwich. YUM!

  18. Would you be able to use anything else other than peanut butter with the fluff? I want to make these but can't stand peanut butter. Thanks!

    1. Nutella or Biscoff spread? Almond, cashew, sunflower seed butters?
