Oatmeal Cream Pies

When I was a kid it was always the best day when one of these made it into my lunch box at school. The soft oatmeal cookie with the smooth sweet frosting sandwiched in the middle. These are so great and so easy to make too.

Ingredients:

Cookies:

1 1/4 Cups Butter

1 Cup Brown Sugar

1/2 Cup Sugar

1 Egg

2 Tsp Vanilla

1 Tbs Molasses

3/4 Cup Whole Wheat Flour

3/4 Cup Flour

1 Tsp Baking Soda

1/2 Tsp Salt

3/4 Tsp Ground Cinnamon

1/4 Tsp Ground Cloves

3 Cups Uncooked Quick Oats

Filling:

3/4 Cup Butter

3 Cups Powdered Sugar

3 Tbs Heavy Cream

1 1/2 Tsp Vanilla

Pinch of Salt

Start by combining the butter with the two sugars. Mix on high until completely combined and fluffy.

Next add in the egg, molasses, and the vanilla, make sure it combines completely.

Next add in the two flours, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and cloves. Mix on low until everything is incorporated together completely. Once all that is mixed together then you can add in your oatmeal. Mixing all that together is the lest step before baking.

Portion out onto a cookie sheet bake at 375 °F (190 °C) for 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges are a crisp golden brown. When done transfer to a cooling rack and let them cool completely.

While the cookies are cooling you can make the filling. Combine the butter with a part of the powdered sugar.

Add in the vanilla, heavy cream, and salt. Mix together and slowly add in the remaining powdered sugar. Once all the powdered sugar is in switch to high so that any lumps are whipped out.

Once the cookies are cooled pair them up. Scoop the filling into the center of half of the cookies. Sandwich the top half on and carefully press down. The cookies should be soft so be careful not to crack them when sandwiching.
