HOMEMADE OATMEAL CREAM PIES


Hands down best oatmeal cream pie i've ever had!!  Little Debbie's got nothing on this recipe :)  

Oatmeal Cookie
1 1/4 cups butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
large egg 
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats 

Cream Filling
2 teaspoons hot water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 - 7oz jar marshmallow creme
1/2 cup shortening
1/3 cup powdered sugar

1. Preheat oven to 375°.
2. Beat butter and sugars at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add egg and vanilla, beating well.
3. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a bowl, stirring well. Add oats; stir well. Add to butter mixture; stir until well blended. Drop by rounded tablespoons 2 inches apart onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes. Cool on pan 2 to 3 minutes. Remove cookies from pan; cool on wire racks.
4. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the hot water and salt.  Stir until salt is dissolves.  Add marshmallow creme, shortening, and powdered sugar.  Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until combined. 
5. Spread marshmallow mixture on the flat side of half of the cookies.  Top each frosted cookie with another cookie, flat side down. Makes 15 sandwich cookies. 
 PS. I actually doubled the cream filling because I like a LOT of cream filling!
