Oatmeal Buttercream Sandwich Cookies
1 1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3 cups oats
1/2 cup butter
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In large bowl, beat butter and sugar together until creamy. Add egg and vanilla. Mix well, then set aside. In a medium bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and oats together. Combine the butter and dry ingredient mixtures together. Prepare a baking sheet with either non-stick spray or parchment paper. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto baking sheet or press out into a round baking sheet to make 2 large cookies. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown (bake time may vary upon size of cookie). For filling, mix together butter, powdered sugar, cream, vanilla, and cinnamon. Spread filling between 2 cookies. Repeat until you are out of cookies and/or buttercream.
