If you LOVE Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies, I have a recipe for you!
We love oatmeal creme pies, so I thought I would search to find a recipe for them. I found a YUMMY one!
What you'll need:
1 and 1/4 cups unsalted butter (2.5 sticks), softened to room temperature
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon dark molasses
1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
3 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats (NOT whole-rolled oats)
3/4 cup (1.5 sticks) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
3 cups powdered sugar
3 Tablespoons heavy cream (using anything with less fat will result in a much less creamy consistency)
1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
pinch of salt, as needed
- First Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
- In a large bowl or stand mixer, cream together the butter & sugars at medium speed until light and creamy.
- Then add the egg, vanilla, and molasses. Make sure to stop and scrape the sides down as needed.
- Beat on medium until well blended. Set aside.
- In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and cloves.
- Add the oats and mix well.
- With the mixer running on low, slowly add the dry ingredients to wet ingredients.
- The dough will be quite thick and you may need to mix some of it by hand.
- Next drop 1/2 inch balls of dough on a lined cookie sheet. Dough will spread out during cooking, so make sure balls are far enough away from each other.
- Bake for 10 minutes, until cookies are lightly golden around the edges.
- Allow cookies to cool on cookie sheet for 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Be careful when transferring them because they will be very soft.
For the filling ~
- With a stand or handheld mixer, beat butter for about 1 minute until creamy.
- Add the powdered sugar and mix on medium speed for 1-2 minutes.
- Pour in heavy cream and vanilla extract.
- Mix on high for 3-4 minutes until fluffy.
- Taste and add a pinch or two of salt, as needed.
- If filling is way too thick, add a couple more teaspoons of heavy cream.
After cookies have cooled, spread one side with enough creme for your liking and sandwich together with another cookie.
