Oatmeal Cream Pie Cookies



Be warned that upon making these little treats you will undoubtedly consume more calories than is healthy for anyone's standards.  Don't worry too much, they are worth it.  I sometimes even eat them for breakfast.  They have oatmeal-- and I eat them with a glass of milk-- so maybe they are not so bad, right?  

For the cookies you will need:

1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/3 cup molasses
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. cloves
scant tsp. salt
2 cups rolled oats
1 3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup milk

Cream together the butter and brown sugar. Beat in the eggs and molasses. Add baking soda, spices and salt.  Mix well.  Stir in oats, flour and milk.  Drop batter by teaspoonful onto greased cookie sheet.  Bake 10 - 12 minutes at 350 degrees.


Filling:

1/2 cup butter, softened (your could also use cream cheese--or 1/4 cup butter, 1/4 cup cream cheese)
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp. whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla

Beat in mixer on low until combined, then on high until fluffy. Eat. Then remember you haven't actually died and gone to heaven, they are just really good.  Although don't eat the whole batch or you might actually die. . . and go to heaven.
