homemade oatmeal cream pies

Major computer issues last week, MAJOR.  Back up your files!! I’ve shed a few tears, not gonna lie.

But these knock-off cream pies didn’t make me cry.  Well, maybe some tears of joy.  Ain’t nothin’ like the real thing?  Guess what, these were EXACTLY like the real thing.  No, they were better…honest to goodness.   Oh, and bonus, you can manipulate the filling to cookie ratio to suit your own taste.  (Can you tell?)  Took me right back to lunch box days in elementary school.  Happy, happy times.  I wonder if there’s a comparable Star Crunch knock-off…? 

12 servings (Calorie estimate: 475/serving)

1 cup margarine

3/4 cup dark brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

1 tablespoon molasses

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 eggs

1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

1 1/2 cups quick oats

Cream Filling

2 teaspoons very hot water

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 (7 ounce) jar marshmallow cream

1/2 cup shortening

1/3 cup powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Directions:

In large bowl, cream margarine, sugars, molasses, vanilla, and eggs.  Combine flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon.Add to the creamed mixture; mix in the oats.  Drop dough by TBSP on ungreased sheets.  Bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes, or until just starting to brown around the edges.  They will look moist; don’t overcook.

While the cookies bake prepare the filling.  In small bowl, dissolve the salt in the hot water. Allow this to cool.  Combine marshmallow cream, shortening, powdered sugar, and vanilla in med bowl; mix on hi until fluffy.  Add the cooled salt water and mix well.  Spread filling on flat side of one cookie, press 2nd cookie on top.
