Ingredients

FOR THE COOKIES:

  • 1 cup salted butter, softened (2 sticks)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¾ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon salt

FOR THE FILLING:

  • 2 cans prepared vanilla frosting (I used Betty Crocker Whipped Fluffy White frosting, but any similar version or even homemade frosting will work)

Instructions

BAKE THE COOKIES:

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, molasses and vanilla; beat well.
  2. Combine the flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Chill dough for at least 30-60 minutes.
  3. Drop chilled dough by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto greased baking sheets.
  4. Bake at 350° for 9-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on pans for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks.

PREPARE THE CREAM PIES:

  1. Once the cookies are cool, spread (or pipe in a bag) about 2 tablespoons of frosting onto the back side of one cookie, leaving a small border around the edge to allow the frosting to squish a little. Top with another cookie to form a sandwich and press down gently. Repeat until you’ve used all of the cookies.
  2. Store in an airtight container on the counter for 1-2 days, or in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
