Guys, you didn’t think today would go unnoticed did you? It’s March 14th. 3.14. Pi Day. The day my two worlds collide. I’m a baking nerd. More like a nerdy baker. Sometimes I multiply fractions in my head to fall asleep. I shouldn’t have typed that. Let’s forget that and talk about pie. P-I-E. Oatmeal cream pie.
I took a break from enginerding to whip up these tasty little treats. The cookie is soft in the middle with a little bit of crisp at the edge. The filling is sweet and creamy and when slathered between two of these cookies, that middle section doesn’t stand a chance. It’s the best bite. Always.
I’d write more but I have to go
review engineering drawings do something cool. So go enjoy these pies for no other reason than they’re delicious…particularly on this 14th day of March.
For the cookie:
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened (I used salted)
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla (I used Mexican vanilla)
1 1/2 cups flour (I used cup4cup gluten free flour)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 cups gluten free rolled oats (not quick oats)
For the filling:
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened (I used salted)
1/4 cup coconut oil (solid)
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
