When I was little, I really, really loved oatmeal–I still do, actually–and I was especially partial to Quaker Instant Oatmeal. My favorite flavor was Maple and Brown Sugar. There is just something about that combination that is so delicious; the warm, caramel tones of brown sugar and the deep, heady sweetness of maple are a match made in heaven! Combined with the salty, buttery goodness of a crisp shortbread, they send these delicious little cookies into flavor overdrive!
