gluten free oatmeal creme pie
- ½ cup salted butter melted
- ½ cup dark brown sugar packed
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- ¾ cup gluten free
- ½ tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 ½ cup rolled oats
vanilla buttercream filling
- ½ cup salted butter room temperature
- 2 ½ cups powdered sugar
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp half and half
- preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. line a baking sheet with parchment paper and grease with nonstick.
- add the butter, dark brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg and vanilla extract to a large mixing bowl
- using a hand mixer or whisk, mix until fully combined
- fold in the gluten free flour, baking soda, ground cinnamon and rolled oats until just combined. you don't want to overmix!
- using a 1 inch cookie scooper to evenly place the cookie dough on the baking sheet at least 2 inches apart.
- bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are golden brown.
- you will have to bake multiple trays of cookies and that is okay! continue to scoop and bake until all of the batter is used.
- after the cookies are done baking, it's time for them to cool and we will work on the vanilla buttercream frosting.
- to a medium/large mixing bowl add the butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract and half & half
- use an electric hand mixer and mix until fully combined
- once the cookies are cooled, it's time to fill our cookies!
- use a piping bag if possible and pipe on one side of each cookie.
- however, if you don't have piping bags, measure about ⅓ cup of frosting on one side of the cookie. you may need to spread it out to the edges using a knife or spoon.
- once you've added the buttercream to half of your cookies, it's time to sandwich them together. add another cookie on top of each, pressing down softly.
