To Make: Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies Recipe | ASpicyPerspective.com

Lt. Dan and I have recently discussed a new house rule for guarding our waistlines…

If you MUST have it, you must MAKE it from scratch!

How to Make Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies Recipe | ASpicyPerspective.com

This rules out feverishly grabbing ice cream bars, store-bought oatmeal cream pies, and any other junk that you only crave at 11:46 pm, the worst possible time to eat it.

And who in there right mind is going to start baking at 11:46pm? Not me! If my craving continues the next day, I will make it myself and delight my family.

These tender Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies are the perfect treat to satisfy nostalgic cravings no matter the time of day. Plus they are much better than the store-bought variety.

The soft pliable cookies are sandwiched together with fluffy cream filling, just how you remember them.

Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies pack well in lunch boxes to provide a big smile when your little someone discovers their treat. That makes them a double win for both parent and child in my opinion.

    I had to smile at this post. We have roller-derby here too. I've been tempted to join. I don't think I could wear those little rumble shorts though :) Those oatmeal pies look good. I don't usually buy baked goods because I figure if I'm to lazy to get up and make something I don't need it after all.

    Well, my waistline really doesn't care if it is store bought or homemade. I make everything from scratch and it doesn't help either.
    I have never eaten one of those delicious looking cream pies.
    The roller derby seamed like a great girls night.

    They look yummy and healthy! I tell myself all oaty things are healthy.
    I feel you on the maturing of tastebuds. I used to love gorging on Entenmanns' chocolate cake as a kid, and a couple years ago I bought a box as a treat. Could not get over the storebought taste and pounds of sugar. It was a little sad. lol

    I used to love those cookies sandwiches when I was a kid! We would buy them all the time, along with the chocolate krisp cookies with a layer of caramel inside. Back then, I could eat whatever I wanted and stay skinny! Those times are long gone…

    Oh yes I certainly remember roller saktes. I remember thinking I was Pinkie Tuscadaro… remember? I thought she was too cool for Hollywood. Yes I know does Pinkie and skating go together- kinda, remember the waitresses were on skates. If my memory serves me right… it's that age thing again.

    Cool pies! My favorite was Hoho's and they thoroughly disgust me now. All of them leave a film in your mouth – yuck!

    Hey Sommer, I just saw this on the Top 9-they looks so wonderful! And I've never seen anyone get a cookie that looks quite so much like the original. I'm making these once I'm moved, as these were my favorite snack when I was little;)
    p.s. that photo is hilarious!

    Congrats on making top 9 for this! You really deserve it. I love the oatmeal cream pies in the package–you did an amazing job replicating them. I can't believe that frosting–OMG. And the roller derby looks like so much fun. I wish I could be that badass!

    Congrats on the Top 9!

    That house rule is brilliant! I have so many recipes I want to try, but only two people in our household to eat them! I think I'll try a version of this trick and give myself a rule that if I'm going to bake… it must be from scratch! No mixes and nothing pre-made! :)

    Love the blog!

    Back in the day, we knoshed Little Debbie Oatmeal Cakes and watched roller derby on Saturday afternoon. It was broadcast opposite Championship Bowling out of Watertown, NY … or maybe Syracuse. Anyway, thanks for such a nostalgic kick in the butt! The cakes look awesome! Worthy of this year's family Yankee Swap where everyone will have a rush from the past!

    too funny and I love the "butt shot"….Those roller derby gals are tough… you need a bit of padding to survive all the falls…. this recipe is the bomb! Love it – have a super Tues. night! – megs

  46. The Mom Chefposted September 29, 2010 at 2:48 am Reply

    I love Little Debbie's version of this so I can't wait to make these. Home made is SO much better.

    Ok, that was a serious wedgie. She looked like my 4 year-old daughter does most of the time (and at least my daughter doesn't know better).

    The Atlanta team just posted this on our forum and I have to say the butt comments make me laugh…because it's mine.

    This one made me laugh the most-
    "Ok, that was a serious wedgie. She looked like my 4 year-old daughter does most of the time (and at least my daughter doesn't know better)."

    The thing is that I have been taught that wedgies are possibly bad and maybe not something that you should expose to the general public. Because I wear this boutfit (yes, boutfit ;) ) I have to be prepared for commentary that's less than supportive. But that's ok. It makes me laugh that I, clearly not a size 6, has the nerve and pride to show the world my money maker. Plus, I think butts are funny.

    Also, I cannot tell you how much I love oatmeal cream pies. Yum!

    Your white KitchenAid looks so pretty – mine's ice blue…….. and I dinged it a few weeks ago with the edge of a cleaver …. don't ask *sob*

    I will be Dudette’s hero for life if I can make these properly. Little Debbie’s Oatmeal Pies are her new favorite thing and she’s unhappy with me at the moment because I neglected to buy her any last time I went shopping. So, maybe I can make up for it by presenting her with the real deal. I know I’ll feel better about a treat I made myself. I like the new rule in your house, by the way. In order to enforce it though, I’d need to find a recipe for Cheetos. Have anything up your sleeve?
