I’m super excited to be teaming up with Immaculate Baking Company to create these awesome cookies using their Gluten-Free Sugar Cookie Mix. I’m blown away by the versatility of their products and the results are mind blowing!
These Cranberry Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies are easy to whip up and you don’t need to chill or roll out the dough. Talk about convenience, what more can you ask for! These are definitely one of the best cookies I have made so far!
I’m also elated that they are gluten-free and I also get to make them vegan with a little tweaking!
You won’t want to guess how many I ate, so happy that the New Year comes with resolutions! For now I’ll just focus on the holidays and all the goodies I get to prepare.
I love how Immaculate Baking company’s Gluten-Free Sugar Cookie Mix is so versatile and easy to work with, I’m so convinced that the mix can never be messed up and that even a complete novice in baking will get it right the first time.
This resilient Gluten-Free sugar cookie mix, reminds me of the Immaculate Baking Company owner Scott, who started the company in his garage and now has become a huge company with his products nationwide.
I was able to convert the Gluten-Free Sugar Cookie Mix to these Cranberry Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies on my first try and the results were remarkable. I pulsed oatmeal in a blend just enough to break up the flakes. I added ground flax seeds and apple sauce as binders. Coconut oil was also added for extra moisture and a crisp texture.

I’d like to offer a few tips when making these Cranberry Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies
- Allow the cookie to completely cool before filling with cranberry buttercream.
- To make your own powdered sugar, blend organic pure cane sugar in a high speed blender until powdery, scraping down sides of blender intermittently.
