Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!

I shouldn’t have made these for Mr. Ralph. He is now obsessed with them and has been asking about them every time I see him. He’s a huge oatmeal cookie lover. I made a huge batch of these for Friendsgiving, and brought him over some extras before everyone ate them up.

I’ve been making these cookie for the past couple of years. They’ve always been a hit wherever I go, and they’re pretty simple to make. Not everyone enjoy’s the traditional pie as a Thanksgiving dessert, so these are great to incorporate on Thanksgiving day.

The cream is outstanding and the oatmeal cookies are soft and chewy all at the same time!

Ingredients for Cookies

2 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
3 Cups Old-Fashioned Oats
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Salt
2 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon 
1 Cup + 1 Tbsp Unsalted Butter, at room temperature. 
1 1/2 Cup Packed Light Brown Sugar
2 Large Eggs, at room temperature
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract

Filling Ingredients:
1 Cup Unsalted Butter, at room temperature. 
14-oz Container of Marshmallow Creme. 
4 Cups Powdered Sugar
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract

Cookie Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 360 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together: flour, oats, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  3. In an electric mixer add butter and brown sugar. Mix together on medium speed, until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the vanilla and egg to electric mixer. Combine.
  5. Turn speed to low. Slowly, add in all dry ingredients.
  6. Beat until combined.
  7. Line a baking sheet with tin foil. Lightly spray tin foil with cooking spray.
  8. Scoop 1 tablespoon of the dough for each cookie. Place on baking sheet 1 inch apart from each other.
  9. Bake 6-7 minutes. You will want them to be really soft, and partly done on the inside. They will continue to cook as they cool.
  10. After removing from oven, move cookies to cooling rack. If you leave them on baking sheet, the bottoms will burn.

Instructions for Filling:  (One of the best fillings I have EVER had)

  1. In an electric mixer butter and marshmallow cream. Beat until smooth and fluffy.
  2. Slowly add in powdered sugar, followed by the vanilla.
  3. Mix until completely combined.
