Oatmeal Butterscotch Whoopie Pies - delicious soft-baked oatmeal butterscotch cookies with a creamy buttercream filling...
These delicious whoopie pies consist of two moist and buttery oatmeal cookies speckled with handfuls of rich butterscotch chips (I added in a cup of raisins because I love oatmeal cookies with raisins, but they're totally optional). Sandwiched between the two cookies is a divine buttercream filling.
I've had this gem of a recipe written, photographed and I've already made them three times. They're so good and easy to make.

- Beat the butter for 2 minutes with a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment on medium speed.
- Reduce the mixer speed to low and slowly add the sifted powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time. Mix until fully incorporated.
- Add the cream and vanilla and mix. (If the frosting is too thick, add 1/2 teaspoon of cream at a time until you get the desired consistency. Also, if the frosting is too thick, add 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar).
