Oatmeal Cream Pie

I remember as a kid my parents buying Little Deddie Oatmeal Cream Pies. I also remember really loving them. I still do!

 But I don't buy them anymore, since I'm trying to watch my weight, but as I was checking out some food blogs I saw a recipe for Oatmeal Cream Pie on Shugary Sweets blog, so I just had to make them!

As you can see from the pictures these came out really good. They taste really yummy almost like Little Debbie's! The cookie is very chewy and sweet. Almost as chewy as Little Debbie's Oatmeal Creme Pies. Just be careful not to over bake these cookies, or they'll be to hard and crunchy. You don't want these cookies to come out that way. You want them soft and chewy as Little Debbie's Oatmeal Creme Pies! Nobody wants a crunchy cookies unless it meant to be! The cream in the center is very sticky and sweet. Together they make a great combination!

If you have kids this is a great treat for snack time or even better to surprise them for lunch! Even if you don't have kids just make them, they'll go fast!

Have fun making these sticky, yummy goodness!

Oatmeal Cream Pie

For the cookies:
1 cup margarine (Not Butter) or butter flavored Crisco (which I used)

1tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda

For the filling:
2 tsp very hot water
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 (7oz) jar of Marshmallow Fluff

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a  large bowl, beat margarine or butter flavored Crisco, brown sugar, molasses, vanilla extract and eggs until combine. 

Add flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon until combine.

Mix in the oats.

Drop by ONE tablespoon on to a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes, until starting to brown around the edges. DON'T OVERCOOK!

After cookies have cooled, combine hot water with salt and mix until salt is dissolved. In a large bowl or stand mixer, beat Marshmallow Fluff with Crisco, powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat on high until fluffy. Add in salt water and mix until well combine.

Spread filling on one cookie and press second cookie on top.
