Oatmeal Cream Pie Cookies

I think I’ll start calling these treats Lil Dubbie’s.  With a nickname of Edubb that still lasts today I feel like I have an okay strong play on words there? Whatever you want to call them, they’re delicious!  Healthy? No. But do those ever play along nicely?

Growing up with a Little Debbie factory down the road introduced me to a variety of their goods at a young age.  That or maybe these were a part of everyone’s life?  Maybe not, but they missed out.

Oatmeal Cookies

  • 1 cup Butter (softened)
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Corn Syrup
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 3 cups Old Fashioned or Rolled Oats
  • 1 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Salt

Creme Filling

  •  1/2 cup Butter (softened)
  • 3 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 (7oz) jar Marshmallow Fluff

 

Preheat oven to 350°

In a food processor, pulse the oatmeal until it is ground and resembles a thick flour.  Measure three cups and place in a bowl with flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.  I

In a mixer, cream butter, sugar, and corn syrup until fully combined.  Add eggs and vanilla and mix.

Slowly add the oatmeal mixture in batches into the wet mixture.  Don’t beat your mixture too hard, the dough will be thick and you don’t want to be too hard on your mixer.

Scoop cookies out so that they are about the size of a golfball.  On a parchment lined cookie sheet, place the dough 2″ apart and press to flatten them slightly.

Bake at 350º for 9-10 minutes or until the edges are just slightly turning brown.  They may not look fully cooked in the middle but you want them to retain that soft, chewy texture. Place finished cookies on a cooling rack to cool completely before sandwiching them with the filling.

While the cookies are baking, prepare your filling.  Cream butter, milk, and vanilla until combined.  Slowly add in powdered sugar until fully incorporated.

Make sure your mixer is off when you’re adding in the powdered sugar. If not your kitchen (mixer, clothes, counter, etc) will look like its a beignet factory or something!

Once the powdered sugar has gotten wet, fold in the marshmallow cream.  Work gently so as not to deflate the marshmallow.  Once the mixture has come together, place in a piping bag and pipe in between two cookies.  Sandwich the two cooled cookies and refrigerate until serving.
