Oatmeal Cream Pies

The ONLY things that I have been motivated enough to make are cookies. I crave them daily and can't get enough of them. You may be wondering how this is different than any other time in my life and the answer is, well... it's not, accept that I think this craving may be a tiny bit stronger! I got this recipe from Everyday Food Magazine and then adapted it to my liking. Not only were these delicious but they are also adorable (my son's words not mine!) I love it that he thinks of food as adorable though, he is obviously my son!

Oatmeal Cream Pies
(makes about 12 sandwiches)

1 3/4 cups flour
1/4 t salt
1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t baking soda
1/4 t cinnamon
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 T molasses
1 t vanilla
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups quick oats

Preheat oven to 350. Mix together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon - set aside. In another bowl beat together butter, brown sugar, sugar and molasses until light and fluffy. Add vanilla then eggs one at a time. Next add in the flour mixture until just combined. Last add in the oats. Drop by the spoonful onto a cookie sheet. (These spread and become thin so don't make them too big. About 1-2 T is good. Make sure they are spread about 2 inches apart so they don't run together.) Bake for about 10 minutes until just set on the edges, so they stay soft. Let them cool for about 5 minutes on the pan, they come off easier this way. Let them cool completely and then frost and sandwich them.

Frosting

1 stick of butter, softened
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 t vanilla
dash of salt
milk, to spreading consistency (about 3 T)

Beat all this together until smooth and spreadable.

  1. Oh yum! It is finally cooling down so I dare to use my oven, and I think these would be worthy to heat it up for!
