Oatmeal Creme Pies!

Hi everybody!

It has been quite a while since I have posted any new recipes, but I have a couple new recipes that any readers can try. As some of you might know, this year I am participating in the Pelotonia event. This is a bike ride around Columbus, OH that raises money for Cancer research. I have a fundraising goal of $1,200 and I was able to raise almost half of that at a bake sale this past weekend. I made a ton of cookies and one of the most popular were Oatmeal Cream Pies. These cookies are always big hits at bake sales that my sorority does. They are absolutely delicious. Here is the recipe!

Cookie Ingredients:

  • 1 cup margarine
  • 3/4 dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups quick oats

Cream Ingredients:

  • 2 teaspoons very hot water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 7 ounce jar of marshmallow cream
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions:

  • In a large bowl, cream margarine, sugars, molasses, vanilla and eggs
  • In separate bowl combine flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon and add to the creamed mixture. Mix in the oats
  • put a tablespoon size pieces of dough on to ungreased cookie sheets
  • preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • bake for 10-12 minutes until just starting to brown around the edges
  • combine cream ingredients and mix until fluffy
  • when the cookies are cooled, spread the cream on the flat side of one cookie and place another cookie on top like a sandwich.

These take some time but are also a lot of fun to make 🙂
