Cream Filling
  • 1/2 cup butter soft
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3-4 tablespoons milk
  • pinch of salt
  1. ***Let the cookies cool completely before filling them.***

  2. Using a handheld or stand mixer beat the butter until smooth and creamy. Add in the powdered sugar, vanilla, 3 tablespoons milk and salt. Beat on high for 2-3 minutes or until nice and fluffy. If the frosting is too thick add in the remaining tablespoon of milk.

  1. Spread frosting on the flat side of one cookie then top with another cookie. Repeat with remaining cookies.

Recipe Notes


  • Make sure the cookies are completely cool before filling with frosting. If they are even a little warm, the frosting will melt.
  • To make all your cookies the same size, make sure to scoop them evenly. I suggest using an actual cookie scoop instead of rolling the dough in your hands in this case, since you really want both cookies to be the same.
  • To keep the cream pies extra fresh, store them in an air-tight container. I really find that this makes a big difference in keeping them soft and chewy for longer.

Storage: Store in sealed container at room temperature for 2-3 days or in the fridge for up to 5 days. 

Make Ahead: Make the oatmeal cookies ahead and store them for up to 5 days in a sealed container. Then just fill with vanilla frosting when you're ready. OR make and fill the cream pies, then store them in a sealed container for 2-3 days at room temperature or up to 5 days in the fridge. 

Freezer: Wrap each sandwich individually with plastic wrap, then store in a sealed zipper bag for up to 3 months.
