I found this recipe over at sallysbakingaddiction.com and thought I would give it a shot. I grew up on Little Debbie oatmeal creme pies being in the house, and although I don't often indulge in cookies now a days, it's always nice to have that one treat that brings you back.
I'm not as confident at baking as I am at cooking, but I thought hey, why not, and the end result was DELICIOUS!
The cookie is soft and chewy and the creme issweet and fluffy. Although not exactly like Little Debbie, it is still a very close second!
Here is the group of ingredients needed for this recipe.
1 and 1/4 cups unsalted butter (2.5 sticks), softened to room temperature
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon dark molasses
1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
3 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats (NOT whole-rolled oats)
3/4 cup (1.5 sticks) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
3 cups powdered sugar
3 Tablespoons heavy cream (using anything with less fat will result in a much less creamy consistency)
1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
pinch of salt, as needed
