Gold Irish Butter & Oats Sandwich Cookies

March 16, 2012

These gold Irish butter and oats sandwich cookies from Love and Cupcakes are a festive St. Patrick's Day treat everyone will love.  Fresh oatmeal cookies are painted with chocolate and then sandwiched with a sweet Irish cream and butter filling.  Edible gold spray gives these cookies their sheen and can be purchased online or in kitchenware stores.  The key to making these cookies truly Irish is using pure Irish butter.  Irish butter has a higher butterfat content than American butter which creates a richer and creamier filling.   Gold Irish butter and oats sandwich cookies will tempt any leprechaun. 


1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup + 2 tbsp quick cooking oats (like McCanns)
1/2 cup UNSALTED Irish butter (like Kerrygold), chilled and cut into small chunks
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup dark chocolate chips
Edible Gold spray paint
