Peanut Butter Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies

In another post I told you about my random purchasing problem.  Sometimes at the grocery store I see a product and I am sure I need it, only to come home and realize I have thought the same thing the last two trips to the store.  So…the problem of three jars of marshmallow creme in my pantry, and the question, does anyone really need one jar of marshmallow creme?  What was I thinking, I am seriously starting to question my shopping abilities.  I need to make a list, and stick to it!  Ok, after making this recipe I am down to two jars of marshmallow creme in my pantry, good day.
