Chocolate Oatmeal Cream Pies made into a football shape for Game Day! Snack on these soft and chewy treats with a creamy filling while you cheer on your favorite team.

Ingredients

For the Cookies:

  • 1 cup butter flavored Crisco
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon molasses
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1½ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1½ cup quick cook oats

For the Filling:

  • 1 Tablespoon very hot water
  • pinch kosher salt
  • 10oz jar Marshmallow Fluff
  • ¾ cup butter flavored Crisco
  • ⅔ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Topping:

  • 4 oz white chocolate, melted

Instructions

Step 1

  1. In large bowl, beat Crisco, brown sugar, granulated sugar, molasses, vanilla and eggs. Add flour, salt, baking soda, cocoa and cinnamon. Mix in the oats.

Step 2

  1. Drop by ONE tablespoon onto a parchment lined cookie sheet (shape into an oval).
  2. Bake 7-8 minutes in a 350 degree oven, until just starting to brown around the edges. DON’T OVERCOOK! Pinch edges of cookies into a football shape if they have rounded too much.

Step 3

  1. After cookies have cooled, combine hot water with salt and mix until salt is dissolved. In large bowl, beat marshmallow fluff with Crisco, powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat on high until fluffy.
  2. Add in salt water and mix until well combined. Spread filling on one cookie and press second cookie on top.

Step 4

  1. Using melted chocolate, spoon into a ziploc bag, snip off the corner, and pipe onto cookie to look like laces on a football.
  2. Allow to set about ten minutes. Enjoy!

Notes

  • If the cookies get too round in the oven, pinch the ends to sharpen the "point" of each football. Do this while the cookies are still warm, just after baking.
  • For cleaner lines on the oatmeal cream pie footballs, transfer the white chocolate to a plastic zipped bag with the corner snipped off. Then pipe the chocolate onto the cookies, just like you would with frosting.
  • These still look and taste great made as regular oatmeal cream pies! Feel free to bake them as regular round cookies. You can drizzle white chocolate over them in whatever design you like, or omit it entirely.
  • Use a tablespoon sized cookie scoop to ensure the cookies are equally sized. Equally sized cookies make the best looking cream pies!
