In my haste to quickly write up all of my favorite oatmeal cookie recipes the other day, I forgot this one. Which I've made twice in a week now. Yummmm!

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Cream Filling (see recipe below)


Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 375°.

2. Beat butter and sugars at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add egg and vanilla, beating well.

3. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a bowl, stirring well. Add oats; stir well.
