Oatmeal Cream Pies // Recipe

* Oatmeal cream pies... ahhhhh... such a delightful snack! *

Here's a simple recipe for these soft and chewy oatmeal cookies with cream cheese filling for those of you who want to make them homemade!


For the Cookies:
1½ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
¾ cup dark brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon unsulfured molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

For the Filling:
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
6 tablespoons powdered sugar


1). Make the Cookies: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and place racks in upper-third and lower-third levels of oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
2). In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon; set aside.
3). Using an electric mixer, beat the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar and molasses on high speed until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla; beat until combined. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, scraping down the bowl after each addition.
4). Reduce the mixer speed to low, add the flour mixture and beat until just combined. With a rubber spatula, stir in the oats. Drop the dough in 2-tablespoonful mounds 2-inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake until the cookies are set at the edges and slightly soft in the middle, approx 12 to 14 minutes, rotating the baking sheets halfway through. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

5). Make the Filling: Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
6). Assemble the Cream Pies: Spread the filling on the flat side of half of the cookies. Sandwich them with the remaining cookies. Store cookies in an airtight container with wax paper or parchment paper between layers.


"And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, 
it is the gift of God."
Ecclesiastes 3:13  



    Is the term, unsaved believer, an oxymoron, or a statement of fact? A few examples are warranted to shed some light on the question.

    UNSAVED BELIEVERS: John 12:42 Nevertheless many even of the rulers believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they were not confessing Him, for fear that they would be put out of the synagogue;

    Can faith not confessed save anyone?

    UNSAVED BELIEVER: Luke 18:18-23 A ruler questioned Him, saying, "Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?"........22 When Jesus heard this He said to him, "One thing you still lack; sell all that you possess and distribute it to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven; come and follow Me. 23 But when he heard these things, he became sad, for he was extremely rich.

    The ruler wanted to omit the term of pardon he did not like. Can those of us, living under the new covenant, omit the terms of pardon we do not like and still be saved?

    UNSAVED BELIEVERS: James 2:18-19 But someone may well say, "You have faith and I have works; show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works." 19 You believe that God is one. You do well; the demons also believe, and shudder.

    Demons believe but, would anyone assert that demons are saved?

    UNSAVED BELIEVERS: Are believers who deny that repentance or immersion in water are essential to the remission of sins, saved? (Acts 2:38)

    John 3:5 Jesus answered, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

    Can you ignore the requirements of Jesus and still be saved?

    Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved...

    If men practice a water-less salvation, will that save them?
