Oatmeal Island Cookies

Island Cookies
Island Cookies

With a tender oatmeal crust, fudge filling and more of the oatmeal dough scattered like islands over the top, these are rich, chewy,delicious and hands down my kids' favorite cookie/bar!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease or line a 9x13 pan with parchment. I like using parchment because it makes it much easier to cut. You just lift the whole thing out to cut into small pieces.

For Dough: In a large mixing bowl cream together:
  • 1 Cup Butter
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Cup White Sugar
 Beat in
  • 2 Eggs and
  • 2 tsp Vanilla
Then add:
  • 2 ½ Cups of flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 Cups Oatmeal
UntitledFilling: Pour the following ingredients into a microwave safe bowl
  • 12 oz of chocolate chips
  • 2 TBS of butter
  • 1-12 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla
Microwave on high heat for 30 seconds remove and stir. Microwave for 15 seconds and stir, repeat at 15 second increments until filling is all melted and smooth.

Putting cookies together:
  • Press 2/3 of dough into the bottom of a greased or parchment lined 9x13” pan until even. 
  • Pour the chocolate filling over the dough. 
  • Dot with the remaining 1/3 of dough.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes until the cookie part is a medium golden brown.
Remove from oven and let cool before cutting into very small squares.

They're quite rich.
These freeze very well.
