Instructions
  1. Beat butter and eggs until blended. Beat in cake mix and oats. Refrigerate, covered, 2 hours or until firm enough to roll, though dough will remain fairly soft.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. On a well-floured surface, roll half of dough to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. round cookie cutter. Place 1 in. apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until set, 8-10 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.
  3. Spread frosting on bottoms of half of the cookies; cover with remaining cookies.
  4. Freeze option: Freeze assembled sandwich cookies in freezer containers, separating layers with waxed paper. To use, thaw before serving.
Recipe Notes

Test Kitchen Tips

  • Try rolling out your dough between two sheets of lightly floured waxed paper.
  • If you have a go-to vanilla buttercream recipe, feel free to swap it for the pre-made.
