Creme Filled Oatmeal Cookies
Why I Love This Recipe
These taste like those famous little cakes you can buy in the store :-) YUMMY!!!
Ingredients You'll Need
1 cup butter, room temp
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp molasses
1 tsp vanilla
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups oatmeal
1 cup shortening (softened butter may be used)
1 cup marshmallow creme (recipe below or you can just buy it hehe)
1 vanilla bean or 1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup powdered sugar
2 egg whites, room temp
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 vanilla bean or 1 tsp extract
Mix together flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. Set aside.
Cream together butter, brown sugar, white sugar, molasses, and vanilla. Add eggs. Combine flour mix into butter mix. Add in the oatmeal. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 F preheated oven for 10 -12 mins. Cookies should just start to brown around the edges but still look moist in the center. Cool to room temp.
Beat shortening (or butter) with vanilla, salt, and sugar until fluffly. Beat in marshmallow creme. Spread filling on flat side of one cookie, then top with another cookie.
Beat whties until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
In a saucepan combine syrup, water and sugar (add vanilla bean and seeds if using). Cook over high heat until 242F or soft ball stage. With mixer runnin slowly pour hot syrup into whites. (add extract now if using) Beat until has thickened (it should almost hold it shape).
