Homemade Oatmeal Creme Pies

I've been wanting to share this recipe for a while now. How many of you love Little Debbies? I did when I was I kid. Fudge Rounds were my favorite. It's funny how your taste buds change when you get older. I hate the taste of those things now. But an Oatmeal Creme Pie I don't mind...occasionally.

About a year ago I came across this recipe for Homemade Oatmeal Creme Pies and I thought I would try them out. They are delish!!  Well worth the time spent assembling. I will say that this a definite "special occasion" treat. Not an every day chocolate chip cookie kind of recipe. But they are very tasty. Also, a good bake sale treat! Now for the recipe.

Oatmeal Creme Pie Cookies
For the Cookie:
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp molasses
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 3 Tbsp boiling water
For the Cream Filling:
  • 1 – 7 oz. jar Marshmallow Cream
  • 1/2 c. shortening
  • 1 1/3 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2-3 Tbsp. milk
For the Cookie:
  1. Cream the butter and sugars in a stand mixer.
  2. Add the molasses, eggs, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Mix well.
  3. Add the flour and oats. Mix well.
  4. Dissolve the baking soda in the boiling water and mix into the dough.
  5. Scoop by rounded tablespoons onto parchment lined baking sheets (allow 2 inches for spreading) and bake at 350ยบ for 10-12 minutes until set around the edges.
  6. Let cool on the baking sheet.
For the Cream:
  1. Using an electric hand mixer, beat together the shortening and the marshmallow cream in a very large bowl (there will be splatter– you’ve been warned).
  2. Beat in the powdered sugar, 1/3 cup at a time.
  3. Add the vanilla and the salt.
  4. Beat in the milk, 1 tbsp. at a time, beating in between additions, until mixture is smooth and fluffy.
  1. Pipe about 2 tbsp. of the filling onto the underside of one cookie. Top with another cookie.
Happy Baking!!
