Oatmeal Cream Pies

Remember Little Debbie Snacks? Zebra Cakes…Swiss Rolls…Nutty Bars…Oh man, those treats were the greatest part of any packed lunch back when we were kids, right? Especially the Oatmeal Creme Pies. Oh god. Those were amazing.

When I was in high school, my French teacher used to bring boxes of Oatmeal Creme Pies to class and sell them to us for 20 cents each to earn some extra cash. Looking back, I feel like that probably wasn’t really allowed, but…it was the greatest thing ever. I sucked at French, but I looked forward to 6th period everyday because I could buy two or three of those pies and savor them all through class.

It’s been a couple years since I ate any Debbie Snacks, but I’ve had a real craving for Oatmeal Cream Pies lately. Probably because I just bought a big thing of rolled oats and I feel the need to use them all ASAP. And once you get Oatmeal Cream Pies on the brain, you can’t get them out until you’ve eaten half a dozen of the things. They’re like crack, I swear.

Since I had just bought a big canister of rolled oats, I decided to make a batch of Oatmeal Cream Pies from scratch. Homemade is always better than store-bought, right? Right. These tasted exactly like the cookies from our childhood, but less cloyingly sweet. 10 year old me would probably prefer the processed stuff, but 25 year old me loved this version.  This recipe is definitely a keeper.

      Thanks! They are soft and chewy and wonderful…I’ve been eating them for dinner all week 😉

      Thanks :) They are a lot like whoopie pies, but more textured and slightly less sweet. They’re really addictive…

    These are the most tempting cookies I’ve ever seen! Love oatmeal cookies, LOVE cream filling, but I’ve never had the privilege of tasting the combination. They look divine and yes, quite addicting!
