Lori’s Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies with Butter Cream Filling

oatmeal cream pies

My husband and sons often request these yummy oatmeal cookies that are filled with creamy goodness.  These are great as “stand alone,” soft, oatmeal cookies or filled with a melt-in-your-mouth, butter cream filling.

Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup softened butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups quick oats

What to do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, cream together sugars and butter. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add flour a little at a time, then mix in soda and salt. Mix well. Mix in oats, one cup at a time. Place 1 teaspoon of dough about 2 inches apart on a well greased cookie sheet. (NOTE: I spray my pan and then use parchment, which is also sprayed. I use a “cookie scoop” to get uniform sized cookies.) Bake for 7-8 minutes, remove from oven and allow to cool.

While cookies are cooling, prepare your
Butter Cream Filling
Melt 1 1/2 stick butter (3/4 cup)
Add in 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 TBSP heavy cream (or milk).
About 2-3 cups of powdered sugar. Mix until creamy, like a thick, smooth frosting. I like it thick enough to use my little cookie scoop.

Place one scoop of filling on a cookie and cover with another, making a sandwich.
