Oatmeal Cream Pies

Miles and I decided to try our hand at baking an old-school favorite today; Oatmeal Cream Pie Cookies.  They turned out pretty good, although a bit too gooey.  I think it needs a bit more oats or flour but I'm not much of a baker by nature so I'm not sure.

First we make the batter for the cookies...yum!

Then we make the fluffy filling...

Yum again!
Finally we have the finished product...

We even let baby Desmond try a little when he woke up from his nap:)

In case anyone wants to try it:

1 cup margarine
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs

1 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 cups quick oats
