My husband had a bit of a sweet tooth last night, so I made a batch of these oatmeal crème pies up. This was my first time using this recipe, and I was really impressed with how well they turned out… and how easy they were to make! (They tasted pretty amazing too)
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- 1/2 cup of melted butter
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 cup of all purpose flour (up to an additional 1/2 cup of flour may be needed depending on the consistency of your cookie batter)
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
Mix all ingredients together thoroughly.
Add in 1 cup of rolled oats and incorporate them throughout your cookie batter.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Using a spoon, form and shape cookie dough balls and place on a non-stick pan, being sure to leave plenty of room for the cookies to expand.
Lightly round the cookies with your fingers after placing them on your pan.
Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes.
Remove them from the oven and allow them to cool for about 5 minutes. Remove the cookies from the pan and place them on a cooling rack to finish cooling completely. In the meantime, you can begin to mix up your crème filling.
For the crème filling you will need:
- 1 cup of vegetable shortening
- 1 cup of powdered sugar
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
- 1 jar of marshmallow fluff
Mix these until well blended and a creamy texture is achieved.
After your cookies have cooled completely, you can begin assembling your oatmeal crème pies. Take two equally sized cookies and spoon on some crème in between them. For a neater appearance, you can pipe the crème in in between instead.
You can eat them immediately, put them in a Ziploc bag to take along in your lunchbox or a picnic outing, or you can place them in an air tight container to save them for another day.
I hope that you guys like these as much as we did! Be sure to check back often for new recipes and updates. Be blessed friends! ❤
