Hi, I'm Lauren from this blog and I'm really excited to be guest blogger on C'est Si Bon. I absolutely love Kristen's blog and was so excited when she asked me to be a guest witer. I am also equally excited that she will be bringing her fabulous style to my blog as a guest writer.
Lately, I've had a bit of a sweet tooth and oatmeal cream pies seem to really hit the spot. I especially like the idea of making my own and skipping out on all of the artificial ingredients you find in the store bought kind. I set out to make my own and since they received great reviews from friends and family I think they are worthy to share here. Hope you enjoy!
Makes 9-10 cookies
1 and 1/4 cups of softened butter
1 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp molasses or honey
1 and 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
3 cups of uncooked quick-cooking oats
7 ounce jar marshmallow creme
1/2 cup of shortening
1/3 cup of powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a cookie sheet and set aside.
In a bowl mix together butter and sugars until creamy. Add in eggs, vanilla extract and molasses. Mix until well blended.
In another bowl mix in baking soda, salt, cinnamon and flour. Add in oats.
In a large bowl mix together the dry and wet ingredients. You can use a mixer or do it by hand.
Scoop balls of dough (equal to 3 tablespoons) onto the greased cookie sheet. These will spread out in the oven so make sure they are at least 2 inches apart.
Bake for 10-11 minutes until the edges of the cookies are light golden brown. Move to cookie rack to cool.
While the cookies are cooling make the filling by mixing together the marshmallow cream, shortening and powdered sugar. Spread 1 tbsp of filling on to a cookie and top with another cookie.
Hope you enjoy!
