Fluffy Oatmeal Raisin Sandwich Cookies-inspired by Paula Deen

Today is my baking day. Manage to bake 8 choc banana square, 1 15x15 inch red velvet cake & this cutie:-
I watched Paula's best dishes on Ch 706 this afternoon. Sgt tempting nak buat this cookies. Lagipun it's about time to finish all bahan2 masa raya hari tu.

Original recipe taken from here:

CNP je recipe kat situ:

1 cup butter, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar (i used 3/4 cup - shud stick to original recipe or at least 1 cup)
1 large egg
1/4 cup milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (omitted)
2 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup raisins
Hot fudge sauce, as needed
Marshmallow creme, as needed (recommended: Fluff)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease 2 or 3 baking sheets or line with silpats.
In a large bowl, beat the butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer until creamy. Add the egg and the milk and beat until combined.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Gradually add the dry ingredients to butter mixture, beating until incorporated. Stir in the oats and raisins. Form the cookies by dropping heaping 2 tablespoonfuls of the batter onto the prepared baking sheets, 6 cookies per sheet, spacing evenly. ( Mine is smaller, I'm using measurement spoon -1/2 teaspoon)
Bake until the cookies are lightly browned, about 11 to 13 minutes. Let them cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheets, then transfer them to wire racks to cool completely.
Spread a small dollop of the fudge on the inside of 6 cookies. Spread a large dollop of the marshmallow creme on the inside of another 6 cookies. Sandwich the cookies together and transfer to a serving platter.

Mocha Macaron with nutella

Setelah lama mengeram telur, akhirnya menetas jugak! Paling best sebab telur tu jadi MACARON!!!
Ini percubaan kedua. 1st time was like 6 month ago. Lepas tu macam kena sumpah takut gila nak buat. Dah le i'm not really a fan of mac.. but since sgt teruja tgk rumah2 org yg dok tayang mac sana-sini, aku pun terjebak jugak!
This recipe taken from dailydelicious. Click here for more comprehensive step-by-step :

I used exactly the same recipe except I sub coffee extract with coffee essence (since nescafe pun takde kat rumah) and intsant coffee with cocoa powder. For filling i'm using nutella. Although tak le cantik sgt and puff terlebih, but still suka sbb nampak kaki.. hehehe!! Must try again this weekend using other recipe pulak. Maybe from Rima or Kitchenguardian.
