Add some spice to the copy cat creme pies by making Gingerbread Oatmeal Creme Pies, perfect for the holiday!
Phew! We’ve made it to Day 6 of Christmas Week! This annual event was started in 2012, and is hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic. This year we have over 35 bloggers sharing festive sweet recipes for the event. Plus we all chipped in for a huge Amazon Gift Card Giveaway so be sure to enter!
You’ve had a Little Debby Oatmeal Creme Pies right?! Well…. I’ve made a copy cat recipe awhile ago… these Homemade Oatmeal Creme Pies are even better than the “real deal”! That’s why this gingerbread version is just as good!
You know… besides saying these are one of my favorite Christmas cookies and they’re a must for you to make this holiday season… I don’t have much else to talk about.
I’m kinda nose shoved in the TV right now watching the NFR. There’s only one more round after tonight and it has been quite a show for the last 9 rounds! Do you watch the NFR?! I mean… I used to barrel race so I definitely enjoy and oh-and-aw over all the barrel horses… wishing I was still competing! I might watch for the Wrangler butts too, but don’t tell C!
So anyways… I’m going to go back to watching the steer wresting and you’re going to get ready to whip out these cookies! Deal?! Good! Let me know whatcha think of them!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup quick oats
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 3/4 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 1/4 teaspoons ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup molasses
- 1 large egg
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- For the Marshmallow Cream
- 10 tablespoons butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons shortening
- 8 ounces marshmallow cream
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2-2 cups powdered sugar
- In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter, shortening, sugars, and molasses on medium-high speed until light and fluffy; about 2 minutes.
- Add in eggs and egg yolks, beating well.
- Mix in vanilla.
- Slowly add in the sifted dry ingredients and oats into the wet mixture, beating on low until just combined.
- Cover dough in an airtight container and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
- When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350*F.
- Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Scoop 2 tablespoons sized balls of dough out, roll them into balls, sprinkle with sugar, and place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat with all dough, leaving 2 1/2 inches in between cookies as they will spread.
- Bake at 350*F for 9-11 minutes, or until set at the edges but still slightly jiggly in the center.
- Allow cookies to cool 10 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to wire rack to cool completely.
- Once cookies are cooled, spread about a tablespoon of the marshmallow buttercream along the bottom side of one cookie and sandwich to the bottom side of another cookie. Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature.
- For the marshmallow buttercream filling
- In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fit with paddle attachment, cream the butter and shortening until light and fluffy.
- Gradually add in the powdered sugar and mix until combined.
- Once all the sugar has been added, increase the speed to medium-high and whip for 2 minutes. Mix in marshmallow creme, nutmeg, and vanilla, beat until just combined.
