Football Friday- Oatmeal Cream Pies

Happy Game Day everyone! Next week's Football Friday will actually occur on Friday- Enjoy the recipe for the week! 

Today's Football Friday post is inspired from Brian! My husband adores the store-bought oatmeal cream pies. When my mom came home from Atlanta with a dozen bakery style OCP's, I decided I must try them myself. The recipe came from one of our good family friends, Mrs. Treva. They are delicious!

 Cream the Aggies Oatmeal Cream Pies

1 c. butter
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1 T. molasses
1 t. vanilla
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
1/4 t. cinnamon
1 1/2 c. of quick oats (At least 1 1/2 cups- less makes cookies a little runny)

2 t. very hot water
1/4 t. salt
7 oz. jar of marshmallow creme 
1/2 c. butter
1/3 c. powdered sugar
1/2 t. vanilla

In a large bowl, beat the margarine, brown sugar, granulated sugar, molasses, vanilla, and eggs. Add flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. Mix in the oats. Place dough on a parchment lined cookies sheet (***We tried these on a plain cookie sheet, a parchment lined sheet, and a Pampered chef baking stone and they had the best consistency and fullness using the parchment paper). Bake at 350* for 8-10 minutes. (Don't let them get crunchy!!)

Once the cookies have cooled, combine the hot water with the salt and mix until the salt dissolves. In a large bowl, beat the marshmallow cream with the Crisco. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat on high until creamy. Add in the salt water and mix until well combined.

Spread the filling on a cookie, then top with another.

We had a bit of the cream left, so I made football laces to add to the fun! 

Happy Friday everyone!
