Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies~

Simply classic! Did you know Oatmeal Cream Pies go back as far as 1960?! They happen to be the first snack Little Debbie brand ever produced. This is also one of my favorites! While eating one last week, I found myself not enjoying the taste. I then began to look up recipes on how to make them from scratch. I swear I lost a whole day on Pinterest because of this, but the end result was this creation and my oh my it is delicious (if I do say so myself!) Enjoy~

Cookie Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Start by creaming butter and sugars in mixer. Then mix dry ingredients together in separate bowl. Add eggs and vanilla to butter mixture and mix until creamy. Add dry mixture to butter mixture. Mix until doughy. Roll and flatten dough into 2×2 cookie size balls. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes. Let cool on pan before removing. (I found I like them a little thinner so I usually make them 1/2 or even 1/4 inch thickness.)

Cream Filling:

  • 1/2 cup soften butter
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 tbsp crisco

Mix all ingredients together until frosting is a light and creamy. After cookies cool, ice the center. Place finished cookies on parchment paper lined cookie sheet and put in fridge for 10 minutes.

Prepare your taste buds! Enjoy~
