Build immunity with #QuakerStrong recipes
Quaker, the world’s number 1 oatmeal brand, is here to make your quarantine kitchen experiments equally delicious and nutritious. Known as a supergrain, oats are a natural source of iron, which is essential for building immunity against diseases. Oats can be easily integrated into your meals to help you meet or fulfill your daily recommended intake of iron. Aside from being a breakfast staple, oats can be taken as a complement to savory meals and as a dessert that is a little less sinful. Quaker has partnered with Chefs Miko Aspiras, Nicco Santos and Allen Buhay to create Quaker Oats #QuakerStrong Recipes -- a variety of sweet treats and savory dishes that you can easily mix with oats for a healthy twist. Here is the recipe for Chef Miko's Quaker Oats Cream Pie that serves 14-15 cookie sandwiches: Cookies Ingredients: - 3 cups (240g) Quaker Rolled Oats or Instant Oats - 1 and 1/4 cups (2.5 sticks; 290g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature - 1 cup (200g) packed dark brown sugar - 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar - 1 large egg, at room temperature - 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract - 1 tablespoon dark molasses or honey - 1 and 1/2 cups (187g) all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled) - 1 teaspoon baking soda - 1/2 teaspoon salt - 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Cream filling Ingredients: - 3/4 cup (1.5 sticks; 175g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature - 3 cups (360g) confectioners’ sugar - 3 tablespoons (45ml) heavy cream - 1 and 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract - salt, to taste Procedure: 1. Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle or whisk attachment, beat butter on high speed until creamy, about 1 minute. Add the confectioners’ sugar and beat on medium speed for 1-2 minutes. Pour in heavy cream and vanilla extract. Beat on high for 2-3 minutes until fluffy. Taste and add a pinch or two of salt, as needed. If filling is way too thick, add a couple more teaspoons of heavy cream. 2. Spread 1.5 tablespoons of cream filling on the bottom side of half of the cookies; top with remaining cookies, right side up.
