|Crunchy, chewy, creamy sweet treats - CCC's? (crunchy, chewy, creamy ;) ).|
For the filling, I just made a simple powdered sugar frosting: Beat together a few tablespoons lard or shortening and about 3 cups powdered sugar, adding enough water for the right consistency. Add vanilla and maybe some spices - to taste ;).
Oatmeal Creme Pies (Gluten, Dairy, Corn-free)
Adapted from Sugar Bananas
1 cup lard (or shortening)
1 1/4 cups sugar (brown or white)
2 tablespoons molasses or sorghum syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla, optional
1 1/2 cups oat flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 cups safe quick oats
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Cream lard, sugars, molasses and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time, mixing completely after each addition. Add remaining ingredients and mix until well combined.
3. Drop small teaspoons onto greased cookie sheets. Bake for 6 to 9 minutes (depending on how big they are), until set on top. The bottoms will be medium to dark brown.
P.S. We've had a few long nights = my brain is tired, so don't expect long posts the next few days ;).
