Hasn’t it been fun?
I have to say there are SO many other flavors that are worth playing with, I can see a sequel somewhere in the future!
Anyhow, Oatmeal Cookie Chunk was an easy choice. The Ben and Jerry’s flavor is Sweet Cream Cinnamon Ice Cream with Chunks of Oatmeal Cookie and Fudge.
So what I did was kinda easy and totally delicious.
I made some super yummy Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies and topped them off with a Sweet Brown Sugar Cinnamon Buttercream. Seriously, a perfect cookie.
I made the oatmeal cookies first.
The quick oats are cut into small pieces (so they cook faster) and tend to give this cookie a more uniformed texture. You could certainly sub in rolled or old fashioned if that’s what you have, it isn’t going to hurt, the cookies will just appear more “oatey”, which is totally a word.
Let the cookies bake until they are golden around the edges…don’t over-bake these guys.
Let them cool on your baking sheet for about 3 minutes and the transfer them over to a wire rack to finish cooling.
While you’re waiting you should make your frosting.
Now this frosting is out of control good. Like I said earlier, it’s a Brown Sugar Cinnamon Buttercream, so it’s pretty much perfect.
Just beat some butter and brown sugar together (again, I used dark, but that’s a personal preference) and add in some cinnamon…
I like using a strong Saigon Cinnamon. It just tends to have a bit more pop of flavor.
Whip that up with some powdered sugar and milk and you’ve got it!
Give each cookie a healthy dose of frosting and you’re all set…
Honestly, these are going in the cookie rotation in my house!
Now you NEED to go hop over and see what Kristan did with Chunk Monkey.
Also, Heather from Sprinkle Bakes joined in today and took on Chocolate Therapy and I can’t even stand it, quite honestly!
