Ingredients

Oatmeal Cookies

  • 1 1/2 c all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 c bread flour*
  • 1 c quick oats
  • 2 tsp dark cocoa powder**
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 c butter
  • 1 1/4 c granulated sugar
  • 3/4 c dark brown sugar***
  • 3 tbsp molasses
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Marshmallow Cream Cheese Filling

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 c butter softened
  • 7 1/2 oz marshmallow fluff
  • 3 c powdered sugar*
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Pinch kosher salt

Instructions

Cream softened butter, molasses, and vanilla.

  • Follow with both sugars and mix. Blend eggs until smooth and set aside.
  • To a separate bowl add oats then sift flour, cocoa, cornstarch, baking powder and soda, salt, and spice.
  • Mix in the wet into the dry until smooth with a hand mixer.
  • ****Drop cookie dough onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 8-9 min; 10 min if making jumbo cookies. Don't over bake! Allow to cool before moving to a wire rack.

Soften the cream cheese and butter to room temp (let it sit out for an hour) and cream.

  • Add a pinch of salt (1/8 tsp), vanilla, and marshmallow fluff and mix until creamy.
  • Incorporate 1 cup of powdered sugar at a time, fully incorporating before adding the next.
  • Sandwich a generous amount of filling between 2 cookies. Pies can be stored in the fridge or freezer for a few days.

Notes

Cookies
*Bread flour can be substituted for all-purpose flour. The bread flour adds more gluten that gives the cookies a little more structure. Without it, the cookies are a bit thinner but still structurally sound.
**Regular cocoa may be substituted.
***Light brown sugar can be used instead but the dark, I found gave a richer color and taste.
****This recipe will make at least 4 dozen cookies using a 1 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop if evenly measured.
Filling
*Add 1-2 additional cups of powdered sugar for a firmer filling. 4 1/2 cups is perfect for piping onto cupcakes.
