Maple Filled Whoopie Pie Cookie Recipe



1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup oatmeal pulsed through a food processor till fine
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring
2 large eggs
 optional: 3/4 cup  finely chopped walnuts


Mix sugar and butter together till fluffy. Add flour, oatmeal, eggs then rest of dry ingredients together till well blended. Fold in nut.
 
Roll in a ball and flatten onto parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 8 to11 minutes at 350 degree oven till set.
Cool on wire rack.

Filling

8 ounces cream cheese
4 cups confectioners' sugar
1/4 teaspoon maple flavoring

In the meantime combine in a bowl cream cheese, sugar and flavoring blend until smooth.
When cookies are cool sandwich together with this filling. Cookies will store better in the freezer if you don't eat them all at once. Take them out as needed or they will dry out.
