Oatmeal Cream Pies

Lets start off with my all time favorite snack.  I could seriously live off of these things and when I buy a box I buy it for myself and I hide in the closet and eat the whole thing, ok not really but I do hide the box and keep it to myself because I don't wanna share.  I always thought about how fun it would be to make my own so when I saw a recipe on Pinterest I was in absolute heaven!  I will not lie that this recipe tastes just like the box I couldn't believe it, I may just ruin my wedding dress diet with these.

 1 cup butter flavored Crisco
¾ cup brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
1 Tbsp molasses
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1½ cup flour
½ tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp cinnamon
1½ cup quick oats

2 tsp very hot water
¼ tsp salt
1 Cup Marshmallow Fluff
¾ cup butter flavor Crisco
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

In large bowl, beat margarine, brown sugar, granulated sugar, molasses, vanilla and eggs. Add flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. Mix in the oats. Drop by one rolled tablespoon onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and flatten a little. Bake 8-10 minutes in a 350 degree oven, until just starting to brown around the edges. Do Not Overcook!

While cookies are in the oven combine hot water with salt and mix until salt is dissolved. In large bowl, beat marshmallow fluff with Crisco, powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat on high until fluffy. Add in salt water and mix until well combined. 
When cookies are out of oven press on them slightly again to get rid of any puff and cool down.
Spread filling on one cookie and press second cookie on top.

Oh I had a helper today!  My daughter Mallory helped me with the cookies and she was telling me she cannot wait to start her own blog and she will name it Good Food Good Life.  Watch out blogging world!
