Oatmeal Creme Pies

More often than not, when I make new things, it’s because I’ve come across something really delicious and have had it bookmarked forever, or I find something delicious that I need to recreate immediately – but occasionally, my treat loving boyfriend will get some kind of sweets idea and harass me until I find a way to make it. Embarrassingly I’ve let him harass me for about a month over Oatmeal Creme Pies, which aren’t even crazy or complex, before I convinced myself to sit down and do it. Never again, because these babies were to die for!

You will need:
1 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
3 cups quick oats
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

And for the filling:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1-2 tbsp heavy whipping cream

Preheat your oven to 375. Start off by whipping together your butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add in fry ingredients and combine fully. Simple enough dough, right? Spoon rounded tablespoons on to a cookie sheet and bake for about 10 minutes – don’t overbake or you’ll risk not having a chewy cookie! Once removed from the oven, allow to sit on cookie sheet for a few minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.

While your cookies are cooling, mix up your filling. Beat butter until soft, and toss in the powdered sugar and vanilla to combine. Add in your whipping cream and do just that – whip! Until it’s all fluffy and ready to go. Spread or pipe onto the bottom side of a cooled cookie, squish another cookie on top, and devour immediately. These little guys will go quick 🙂
