  3. Oatmeal Spice Creme-Filled Cookies Recipe

I have this thing against anything packaged. Not because I’m an elitist or think they are gross; I just simply don’t like the long list of ingredients in most processed foods. Ok, that does sound kind of annoying, but don’t you want to know exactly what you are eating? I get that certain processed foods are nostalgic, but they usually don’t even taste that great and certainly not the flavor you get when something is homemade. For this reason I’m always making knock-off versions; or really, recipes that are inspired by others. Enter these oatmeal spice creme pies.

No, they’re not just like the packaged ones you remember, but that’s what I like about them! These are delicious, full of flavor and homemade. It’s the perfect fall treat and easy to make!

Total Time 44 mins
Servings 17 cookies

Ingredients

For the cookies

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp allspice
  • 1 ½ cups old-fashioned rolled oats

For the creme filling

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar

Instructions
 

For the cookies

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light, 3-5 minutes.
  • Add eggs and mix until well incorporated, scraping the bowl to ensure even mixing.
  • Add flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and oatmeal. Mix until no dry streaks remain. Scrape the bottom of the bowl for a final mix.
  • On a parchment-lined baking sheet, make 1-ounce sized balls. Bake until the edges are set and the center springs back, 11-14 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool 5 minutes before removing from pan. Cool on a cooling rack.

For the creme filling

  • Beat all ingredients together until light, fluffy, and evenly incorporated. If too soft, add more powdered sugar, ¼ cup at a time; to soften, add additional milk.
  • When the cookies are cooled, spread 1 teaspoon of filling on the bottom of one cookie. Top with another cookie. Continue until all cookies are used.
