1-1/2 cups shortening
2-2/3 cups packed brown sugar
4 large eggs, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
4 cups old-fashioned oats
3/4 cup shortening
3 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
1 to 3 tablespoons 2% milk


Preheat oven to 350°. Cream together shortening and brown sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk the next 5 ingredients; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Stir in oats.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto lightly greased baking sheets. Bake until golden brown, 10-12 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool.
For filling, cream shortening, confectioners’ sugar and marshmallow creme. Add enough milk to achieve spreading consistency. Spread filling on the bottoms of half of the cookies; cover with remaining cookies.
