Oatmeal Creme Pies

Day 12: For the last day of the 12 days of Christmas (cookies), I saved one of my new favorites – homemade oatmeal creme pies. These are good. Really good. And they were an accident! (sort of). I had this great recipe planned for a completely different type of cookie that I was all excited about, and it turned out to be terrible. I knew I couldn’t use it as part of my cookie series, so I was searching the internet for a replacement. When I stumbled on the idea of oatmeal creme pies, I was hooked. I combined a few different recipes to get what I wanted, and these wonderful, chewy cookies with the smooth and creamy filling are the result. They’re delicious! Mike was very pleasantly surprised when he tasted them, and they are one of his new favorites as well.

Oatmeal Creme Pies

Ingredients:

Cookie:
1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup shortening
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
2 cups regular uncooked oats

Filling:
1 cup butter, softened
4 cups powdered sugar
2-4 tablespoons whipping cream
2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

For the cookie:
Preheat oven to 375. Beat butter, shortening, corn syrup and sugar on medium speed until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla extract and beat until blended. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and cloves and gradually add to butter mixture. Stir in oats. Shape dough into tablespoon size balls and place 2 inches apart on parchment lined baking sheets. Press down on each ball to flatten slightly. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden. Cool on baking sheet for 3 minutes, then remove to wire rack and cool completely.

For the filling:
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined, scraping bowl. Beat on high until light and fluffy.

Spread filling on one cookie and sandwich another cookie on top. Eat and enjoy :)

    Ashley – Nutty Bars are another classic treat! Not as good as oatmeal creme pies though of course :)

    marzipanmom – Thanks for stopping by! And it was your post that originally made me want to make oatmeal creme pies :)

    This looks SO good! I used to have a huge infatuation with oatmeal cookies and I think you've just resurrected it! The cookies look thin and chewy, just the way I like 'em. And I love the cream in the middle. *drooool*

    I loved those Little Debbie oatmeal pies as a kid! This recipe takes me back.

    I saw that you live in Grand Rapids. That is where all my mother's family is from. My Aunt Carla has a cookie business there; Carla's Cookies. Check it out sometime. Her Whoopie Pies are AMAZING!
