Homemade Oatmeal Creme Pies

When I was a little girl my Mom would ask me what special treat I wanted for my lunch.
I would always say that I wanted Little Debbie's Oatmeal Cream Pies.
They were my absolute favorite.
I had one not too long ago and I didn't really like it that much.
I couldn't really get into the over-processed cream in the middle.
I guess, for a kid, though they were the ultimate in treats.
(My sister always chose a Devil's Square.)

So, not to long ago I saw a recipe on pinterest for 
homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies and I knew that I had to give it a try.




 Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies
(from Baked Perfection)

recipe makes 24 sandwich cookies

Cookies:

1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 cups quick oats

Cream Filling:

2 teaspoons hot water
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 (7 ounce) jar marshmallow cream
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon in a bowl.  In the large bowl of a mixer, cream butter and the sugars.  Add in the eggs, beating after each.  Finally beat in molasses and vanilla.  Add to the flour mixture to the creamed mixture and beat until just blended; mix in the oats with a wooden spoon.  Scoop dough with a small scoop (I used 1 tablespoon scoop) and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.  Make sure to leave plenty of space between the dough scoops.  Bake for 12 minutes, or until just starting to brown around the edges.  Let sit on a cookie sheet for about 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.




While the cookies bake prepare the filling.  In a small bowl, dissolve the salt in hot water.  Set aside and allow this to cool.  Combine the marshmallow cream, shortening, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a bowl.  Mix on high until fluffy (3-4 minutes).  Add the cooled salt water and mix well.  Spread the filling on the flat side of one cookie  and press the 2nd cookie on top.



Enjoy,
