Ingredients

Cookies

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp. LorAnn's maple extract
  • 1 3/4 cups old fashioned oats not quick oats

Maple Cream Filling

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk till combined. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, add in the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Beat until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes).
  • Add in the egg and maple extract, and beat on medium until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Add in the old fashioned oats and beat until just combined.
  • Slowly, add in the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until combined.
  • Using a 1 1/2 tablspoon cookie scoop, scoop out cookies and place on the prepared pan. Lighly press the cookies down so they're no longer domed, and slighly flattened.
  • Place in the preheated oven and bake for 10 to 11 minutes until the edges are golden brown.
  • Remove from oven, and let the cookies cool for 10 minutes on pan before moving them to the wire cooling rack.
  • While the cookies are cooling, make the maple cream filling:
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter, then add the maple extract and heavy cream - blend well.
  • Add the powdered sugar, mixing on low until almost completely combined. Then turn the mixer on high and beat for another 2 - 3 minutes until the filling becomes light and fluffy.
  • Once the cookies are completely cooled, add the filling to a piping bag and cut off a corner. Pipe filling onto cookie and then add the top cookie to the oatmeal maple cream pie.
