Ingredients

For the Cookies:

  • 1 cup butter flavored Crisco
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp molasses
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1½ cup flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1½ cup quick oats

For the cream filling:

  • 1 Tbsp very hot water
  • pinch salt
  • 10oz Marshmallow Fluff
  • ¾ cup butter flavor Crisco
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

For the Topping/Decoration:

  • 4 oz white chocolate, melted

Preparation

Step 1

In large bowl, beat Crisco, brown sugar, granulated sugar, molasses, vanilla and eggs. Add flour, salt, baking soda, cocoa and cinnamon. Mix in the oats.

Step 2

Drop by ONE tablespoon onto a parchment lined cookie sheet (shape into an oval). Bake 7-8 minutes in a 350 degree oven, until just starting to brown around the edges. DON’T OVERCOOK! Pinch edges of cookies into a football shape if they have rounded too much.

Step 3

After cookies have cooled, combine hot water with salt and mix until salt is dissolved. In large bowl, beat marshmallow fluff with Crisco, powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat on high until fluffy.

Step 4

Add in salt water and mix until well combined. Spread filling on one cookie and press second cookie on top.

Step 5

Using melted chocolate, drizzle the top to look like a football. Allow to set about ten minutes. Enjoy!
