New Old-Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies

I was food blog surfing awhile ago and copied a bunch of recipes I liked. Unfortunately I did not think to put where I got the recipes from so I can't give credit to the person who deserves it. But they do deserve credit because these cookies were fabulous!! My husband and I loved them! I had to bring them to a BBQ just so I wouldn't eat all of them!

1 1/4 cups butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
3 cups oats, rolled or quick

Preheat oven to 375F. Beat butter and sugars with an electric mixer at medium speed until creamy. Add egg and vanilla, beating well. Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl and whisk together. Add to the butter mixture. Add oats; stir well. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake at 375F for 9-11 minutes. Cool on pan 2 to 3 minutes. Remove cookies from pan and cool on wire racks. Spread 1 tablespoon cream filling over bottom side of half of the cookies. Top with remaining cookies, right side up.

Cream Filling
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 to 2 tablespoons whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Beat ingredients together until combined and light and fluffy.
