Directions
Cookies
  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone
  2. baking mat. Set aside.
  3. Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and
  4. sugars together on medium-high speed until light and creamy, about 1 minute. Beat in
  5. the egg, vanilla, and molasses, scraping down the sides as needed. Set aside.
  6. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and oats.
  7. With the mixer running on low, slowly add the dry ingredients to wet ingredients. The
  8. dough will be quite thick and you may have to mix it all by hand after a few seconds in
  9. the mixer. Drop dough with a large cookie scoop, or make sure each ball of dough is 2
  10. Tablespoons. Cookies will spread in the oven, so drop each ball of dough 3 inches apart.
  11. Bake for 10 minutes or until cookies are lightly golden around the edges. Allow cookies
  12. to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool
  13. completely.
Cream Filling
  1. Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle or whisk attachment, beat butter on
  2. high speed until creamy, about 1 minute. Add the confectioners’ sugar and beat on
  3. medium speed for 1-2 minutes. Pour in heavy cream and vanilla extract. Beat on high for
  4. -3 minutes until fluffy. Taste and add a pinch or two of salt, as needed. If filling is way
  5. too thick, add a couple more teaspoons of heavy cream.
  6. Spread 1.5 Tablespoons of cream filling on the bottom side of half of the cookies; top
  7. with remaining cookies, right side up.
