Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Moon Pies

These were our dessert for Father's Day after we had that awesome BBQ and Corn Dip. Dad has always always loved moon pies and oatmeal cookies. He's just a big fan of all those candies and baked goods he grew up with. In fact, for Christmas I gave him a box of all the candies he grew up with, including Turkish Taffy, Mallow Cups, Clark Bars, Bit-O-Honey, and so on. If you have a parent who is into that kind of stuff, let me tell you it will be a big hit! He loved it and I'm sure yours will too. So that was my inspiration and we  now have the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Moon Pie. 

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Moon Pies
Yield ~15 

3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups oats
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 cup chocolate chips
6 tablespoon butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla

3/4 cup marshmallow fluff
1/2 cup butter
1 tablespoon vanilla
1- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cream butter and brown sugar together, add in the egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour the liquid mixture in to combine. Last stir in the oats, pecans, and chocolate chips. Bake for 9 minutes. Let cool. Meanwhile cream the 1/2 cup butter and powdered sugar together in another bowl. Mix in the vanilla, then the marshmallow fluff. When your cookies are cool you may assemble them. Just spread a layer of the fluff filling on them and place another cookie on top and they're ready!
