Pies of Oats and Cream

When we see Little Debbie commercials on TV, Andy will profess his love of Oatmeal Cream Pies. When I saw this recipe – I knew I had to try them. Who better to try them on, than his family? They were a hit.
I used milk on the cream filling only because I have a hard time buying a special container of whipping cream just for 1 or 2 tablespoons. Thankfully it worked in my favor.

Oatmeal Cream Pies
1 ¼ cups butter (softened)
1 cup brown sugar (packed)
½ cup white sugar
1 ½ cups flour
3 cups oats
1 egg
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla

Cream Filling:
½ cup butter (softened)
2 cups powdered sugar
1 – 2 tbsp. whipping cream (or milk)
1 tsp. vanilla

Make it!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Begin by creaming the butter.
Add the white sugar. Add the brown sugar. Keep on whipping and creaming. Add the egg and vanilla. Continue mixing ingredients.

Mix the dry ingredients together. Add the oats in with the dry ingredients. Stir together. Gradually add this mixture to mixing bowl. Mix until combined.

Use a small cookie scoop to scoop dough. Place the dough balls at least 2 " apart on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake the cookies at 375 for 10 minutes. Leave on pan to cool (and continue baking) for 2 mins. Transfer to cooling rack. Let the cookies COOL completely.

For Filling: Begin by creaming the butter. Sift the powdered sugar. Add the powdered sugar to the butter and mix. Add the vanilla and 2 T. whipping cream. Mix on medium speed until combined. Turn the mixer on high and whip the filling for about 2 minutes until fluffy.

Take half the cookies - and distribute the filling to all of them, then press another cookie on top. Eat and enjoy.
