Oatmeal Cream Pies

I recently made these delectable cookies for some friends as a very belated THANK YOU and have been asked multiple times for the recipe so I thought I would share. This recipe originally came from my fabulous friend Super Sheila.

1 1/4 cups butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats

1. Preheat oven to 375°.
2. Beat butter and sugars at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add egg and vanilla, beating well.
3. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flour and remaining ingredients in a bowl, stirring well. Add to butter mixture; stir until well blended, mixture will be drier. Drop by rounded tablespoons (keep size consistant) 2 inches apart onto greases baking sheets. Bake at 375°for 8-10 minutes DON't over cook! Cool on pan 1 to 2 minutes. Remove cookies from pan; cool on wire racks.
4. Spread 1 tablespoon Cream Filling over each bottom side of half of cookies; top with remaining cookies, right side up.
