  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 cups Marshmallow Creme
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  2. Use a 2-ounce cookie dough scoop to drop scoops of dough onto ungreased cookie sheets 2 inches apart.
  3. Bake at 325 degrees F for about 13 minutes. Cookies should be firm enough to handle, but not overdone and crispy.
  4. Cool on wire racks, then make sandwiches with filling.
  5. Filling: Beat together butter and powdered sugar.
  6. Beat in the Marshmallow Creme and vanilla extract, blending until smooth.
  7. Spoon 1-2 tablespoons of filling onto the bottom of a cooled cookie.
  8. Press the bottom of another cookie on top of the filling to make a sandwich.
  9. Repeat with remaining cookies and filling.
  10. Store pies between layers of wax paper in an airtight container, and refrigerate for up to 2 days.

Variation: use devil’s food cake mix!
