Maple-Nut Oatmeal Cream Pies

Maple-Nut Oatmeal Cream Pies

Ingredients:

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon maple flavoring
  • milk, if needed
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup chopped nuts (pecans, walnuts, almon
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons water

Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine oats, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt.
  2. In another bowl, beat eggs, applesauce, water, oil, and vanilla until well mixed, then stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. DON'T overmix. Gently fold in the nuts.
  3. Drop batter by 2 tablespoons, 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet, shaping each into a circle. Bake at 350 for 9-10 minutes or until tops are firm. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  4. In a small mixing bowl, beat filling ingredients together until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add a tablespoonful of milk if you'd like it thinner. (I usually add 1 or 2.)
  5. Spread over bottom of half the cookies; top with remaining cookies. Store in refrigerator.
  6. Note: If you find that they spread too much when baking, add a few tablespoonfuls of flour to the remaining batter.
