Childhood Favorite Snacks

What was your favorite childhood treat? Swiss Cake Rolls, Twinkies, Ding Dongs?

I was an Oatmeal Cream Pie kind of girl.

How long has it been since you had one??? Sadly, they may not be quite what you remembered. Still good, but not amazing. Maybe we’ve matured beyond heavily preserved, factory-processed baked goods.

However, the homemade version is an entirely different story.

Our New Rule

Lt. Dan and I have recently discussed a new house rule for guarding our waistlines. It goes something like this…

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

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 their 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.

Oatmeal Cream Pie Recipe From Scratch

These tender Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pie Cookies 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, taste and texture both.

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.

So let’s learn how to make oatmeal cream pies right at home! Ready to get started?

How to Make These Copycat Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies

For Classic Chewy Oatmeal Cookies:

  1. Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl and set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  3. Beat together the wet ingredients on medium speed, then add in the sifted flour mixture ingredients. Once combined add in the oats. Scrape the bowl and mix until smooth.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Can I substitute butter for the shortening? What about coconut oil?

Yes, you can! It will change the flavor a tad, but will definitely work the same. Butter will make a nice soft filling, while coconut oil will make the filling a little stiffer than the traditional “frosting” filling.

Can I add raisins to my oatmeal cookies?

While the original oatmeal creme pies don’t have raisins in them, you can opt to add raisins if you’re into that!

Can I use plain marshmallow fluff as the filling?

If you are in a time pinch, you can simply just use store bought marshmallow fluff as the filling, but it won’t be as fluffy or as sweet as if you doctor it up like I did!

How long do Oatmeal Cream Pies stay fresh?

These cookies will stay fresh at room temperature for about 3 to 5 days. Make sure to wrap them well.

Can I freeze Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies?

Yes, it’s best to wrap them individually in plastic wrap before freezing. Then you can place all the individually wrapped cookies in a freezer bag or airtight container and freeze for up to 6 months. Let them thaw at room temperature.

Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Perfect Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies Recipe – Soft rustic cookie sandwiches with fluffy filling in the middle! Classic oatmeal cream pies are sensational.
Servings: 10 cream pies


For the Oatmeal Cookies:

For the Cream Filling:


For the Cookies:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Sift the dry ingredients into a medium bowl and set aside.
  • Use an electric mixer to cream the brown sugar, butter, egg, and vanilla. Once smooth, slowly add the dry mixture to the wet mixture until well combined. Stir in the oats.
  • Use a tablespoon-sized scoop to form equal dough balls. Allow them plenty of space to spread. Bake for 7-9 minutes. Let the cookies cool completely before moving off the parchment paper.

For the Filling:

  • Cream the shortening, powdered sugar, and vanilla together until smooth. Mix in the marshmallow fluff.

To Assemble:

  • Match up two cookies that are of equal size and shape. Turn the bottom cookies over. Use a piping bag (or zip-bag with the corner cut off) to pipe the filling onto the bottom cookie. This is much easier than trying to spread it. Add the top cookie of each cream pie and press down.



I found I liked a thin layer of cream filling better than a thick layer, but you should have plenty if you want to pile it on!

  1. So beyond happy I found this recipe. I did make them dairy free with dairy free butter because my husband is allergic and they are amazing. They were extremely easy to make and I will definitely be making them again. Not sure if it was the dairy free butter but mine didn’t form into balls when I put them on the cookie sheet. They still turned out great though. Thank you for this recipe! 

  2. Hello! So excited to try these!! Could I substitute quick oats for rolled oats in this recipe?

  3. Should I use unsalted butter? I noticed you add salt. 

  4. These are sooo much better than store bought. Everyone that has ever tried these goes crazy for them. Today is my husband’s birthday and instead of a cake, he has requested these! Thank you for this awesome recipe!

  6. These cookies brought me back to my kindergarten days!! Wow how amazing and delicious!! My kids DEVOURED these almost instantly and didnt believe me when I said I made it!

  7. Holy smokes! I made these for a family down the road, and I tried one before taking them to them… now I have to make some for us. Haha. Thank you!

  8. My kids and their friends all loved these! So delicious!

  9. this is the best thing ever, and makes me feel better about eating this copycat little debbie recipe

  10. SOO GOOD!!! Everyone loved them! Totally a level up on Little Debbie’s recipe, but still super nostalgic and delicious:)

  11. Just made these for my daughters bake sale, and I also subbed the shortening for butter. My question is, can I still leave them in a airtight container at room temperature? Or because there is dairy, do they need to be refrigerated? I need to bring them in tomorrow morning and then they are gonna serve them up on Saturday. Do you think they will hold up?

  12. I made this one time before and I swear it worked perfectly. Today, I made 3 different batches and the cookies turned out flat and greasy each time. What the heck went wrong? I checked all ingredients and everything was good. Any input would be appreciated!

    • Hi Nikki,

      Hmmm… It sounds like your oven might have veered off temperature since the last time you made them. Try hanging a new oven thermometer in the center of the oven to test the temp. Then pull up instructions online to recalibrate the oven. (It’s usually pretty easy to do.) Hope this helps!

    • Was your baking powder fresh? That could result in flat cookies too.

  13. This recipe is pure gold ! I’ve been looking for a good oatmeal cookies recipe for so long and they never turned out as tasty as expected…until I found this recipe ! It’s so easy and quick to make, tasteful, yummy. Everyone loved this cookies and we’re at the 3rd batch in 2 week :D It’s gonna stay in my bookmarks forever and ever. Thank you !

  14. Great recipe! I will mention that since I am kinda on an egg buying “REVOLT” due to prices (I just can’t bring myself to pay 30 cents per egg)!! So, I decided to substitute 1/4 cup of applesauce per egg and they turned out just the right kind of sweet and chewy. The family loved them!

  15. Delicious! The filling is so creamy. Even the non gluten free house members love these.

  16. Followed the tips from other reviews and did a double batch of cookies to one batch of frosting and still had a smidge of frosting left over. I didn’t have a tablespoon sized scoop so I just used a tablespoon to portion the dough out and ended up with 28 cookie sandwiches in the end. Also did half butter half crisco for the frosting. Took them to the river for a day out with friends & kids and they were a smash hit with everyone, we were forcing ourselves to stop at 2 a person.

  17. These are delish!! My fiancé couldn’t stop eating them and neither could I! I made them twice after realizing I had leftover crème filling that I put in the fridge to save for a gluten free batch. The only issue is mine flatten out severely, and become so thin! I even put the second batch of dough in the fridge for 20 mins before separating to balls and it still didn’t help. I only baked for 7 mins, and 6 mins the next time. Either way I will be making these again very soon because they do not last long! 

    • Hello! Not the OP here but I recently had this problem with my cookies and realized it was likely due to expired baking soda/powder. Hope that helps!

  18. I made this recipe this weekend. Super easy. It is FABULOUS! My kids will not stay out of them. I did double the cookie recipe. And I used butter instead of shortening in the filling. It is what I have been looking for! Thank you for such an amazing recipe!

  19. I make this recipe all the time! Thought I’d share I made it as a “Valentine’s day” dessert yesterday and colored the cream filling pink to fit the holiday! It turned out so cute ☺️ even added some red sprinkles in some! 

  20. These are fantastic! I have a gas convection range and cooked the minimum noted time and the cookies were perfect! I shared and everyone raved about them. Like others noted, the icing is definitely enough for about 2 batches of the cookies. I just cooked one set to start and put the icing in the fridge and plan to make a second batch. These did not last long. Great recipe as noted!!

  22. This recipe was delicious! I will say to bake the cookies for 10 minutes so it’ll hold better, but they were still great!
    I made the filling with butter instead of shortening and oh my! Much more flavorful and I only used 3 sticks (1 1/2 cups) of butter instead of 4 (2 cups) (I doubled the recipe).
    I also made 2 double batches and 1 regular batch of the cookies (50 sandwiches) and I had PLENTY of filling.

  23. Made these today and they turned out great. I used butter in the filling and cut the ingredients in half as others had mentioned. Great recipe.

  24. I made these for Fourth of July.  They were delicious!  Everybody loved them!

  25. These are excellent!  I  made no changes to the recipe.  I did make one batch with Old Fashioned Oats and one with Quick Oats.  We preferred the Old Fashioned Oats batch but really either one is amazing and both are rolled oats by definition.
    I made two batches since everyone was commenting the filling was enough for two.  I even had some left over.  This is a keeper!

  26. I was going through depression and my grandma maid me a patch of these. I’m not exaggerating when i say i cried tears of joy.

  27. I had a ton of extra filling this time. Has anyone tried freezing the filling before? 

  28. I like these better when I replace half the Crisco with butter in the filling. But that’s just my personal taste. These go like mad when I make them for parties or gatherings. Really delicious! And sooooooo easy!

  29. DELICIOUS and so impressive! A fairly foolproof recipe and a great stand mixer cookie!

    The cookies themselves stayed soft and chewy with the perfect oat to spice to brown sugar / molasses flavour balance. The cookies on their own are FOR SURE becoming my go to oat spice cookies for cookie trays around the holidays! The dough is wet, not exactly like a chocolate chip cookie, so do not be alarmed if it looks a little too wet. Cookie scoop recommended.

    I do recommend removing them from the oven at the earliest time (even if they look a little underdone) and letting them continue to cook/cool most (if not all) of the way on the sheet. This is the trick to preventing tough cookies. And even if your first batch is a little tougher, fill them anyways! They will soften and regain some of their chewiness in the airtight container overnight / over the first 24 hours.

    The filling is also spot on for Little Debbie! We don’t eat any shortening in our day to day lives so I went whole hog and did it properly and the flavour was fine, very mild just like Little Debbie’s (so it succeeded in the copycat, for sure!). However, I think next time I’ll double the vanilla and do half and half shortening and butter (as is more to our tastes), and after experiencing the process I think it will be completely fine texture-wise.

    The other modification was subbing out the 7.5 oz bin of marshmallow cream for 8 oz of mini marshmallows, melted with half of the shortening in the microwave (as if making the marshmallow component of rice krispie treats). This worked great! It did take a little bit of beating in the mixer with the other ingredients, but it did eventually smooth out to a perfect marshmallow filling. No need for the specialized ingredients if you don’t keep marshmallow cream in your baking cupboard! However, you do need to used a ziploc / pastry bag to administer the filling to the bottom cookie, I attempted to do the first few with an offset spatula and it was a pain. Ziploc all the way, it’s soooo much faster!

    For recipe sizing, I followed a commenter’s recommendation of doing a double batch of the cookie recipe and using one batch of cream filling and it was the PERFECT amount, with a little bit of cream left over to put on a few unseemly scrap cookies (for the baker! ;) ). I couldn’t IMAGINE the amount of goo per cookie with a double batch of cream, it would probably be super sweet and very messy to eat.

    In conclusion, this recipe was amazing the very first try (even with my modifications), and has totally inspired to make more whoopie pie type desserts (as this was my first time ever attempting any form of them!). Thank you so much for sharing it! :)

    • Thank you so much for the diy marshmallow fluff idea! I really didn’t feel like going to the store just for a jar of it, and all the recipes online look like too much work LOLL!!

  30. A great homage to one of my childhood favorites!

    • So yummy! Little Debbie who?? This recipe puts that pre packaged childhood treat to shame! Easy recipe, doubled the recipe and still had leftover filling; will likely make a single batch recipe tomorrow to use the remainder of it. Thanks for sharing your recipe, its a new fave!

  31. Can I use coconut oil instead of shortening for the filling?

  32. Hi! Can I use butter instead of shortening for the filling? 
    I know it will change flavor a bit but will it ruin the cream? 

  33. Made these for the first time last year for my peanut/tree nut allergic little guy who has never been able to try a “real” one.  But these are SOOOO much better that he is definitely NOT missing out on the packaged variety! These have become a favorite of his and  the whole family loves them! Pre-covid we took them to a get together with friends and everyone raved about them! I have started to  add a dash of salt to the filling to cut some sweetness, as well as using part butter and part shortening.  Got my 9 year old daughter to make them today.  She loves baking and we joke about opening a nut-free bakery when she grows up. If we do, these will definitely make the menu!  Thank you for sharing this recipe!!

  34. Amazing! These turned out beautifully. I made them gluten free – subbed in 1 c of King Arthur all purpose gf flour for the flour, and it worked perfectly. The recipe made 13 individual cream pies with 1 tbsp per cookie. I also cut the filling recipe in half and it was more than enough for all 13! Will definitely make these again. 

  35. Being stuck at home isn’t nearly as bad with these delightful treats. Most of the items I already had in my pantry, so I didn’t have to go looking around the store for anything crazy. I also substituted the vegetable shortening for butter and WOW. So good. Thank you for this delicious recipe!

  36. Absolutely delicious! Mine didnt spread out much (making a second cookie batch today to try again) but they were still amazing. In the filling I used butter instead of shortening 😋 delicious.

    As others have said it makes alot of filling we didnt sandwich our cookies cuz they were too tall and used alot and we still have enough to make a second batch of cookies… (and I may have eaten a few spoonfuls of filling straight up 😅😏)

  37. I tried multiple recipes for these. We LOVE this one! My family and friends .. yum ! So delicious thank you for sharing! 

  38. I just made these today for our family Christmas party tomorrow but of course, I tried one and it was soooooooooo good!!! There was wayyy too much icing for the amount of cookies left over so I would almost half the amounts listed.

  39. These are so tasty! Definitely need to double the cookie recipe to use all the filling. It was the perfect amount of creme to the doubled cookie recipe. Also added another tsp (3 tsp total) to the filling because it tasted too marshmallowy to me. Refrigerating the dough helped the cookies not spread and caramelize as much because of all the brown sugar in them. With those tweaks this recipe was perfect! Thanks for sharing!

  40. The cookies are wonderful. Thank you for this recipe. Next time I think I will either double the cookies or half the filling. Really good stuff!!

  41. Easy to make. Everyone loved them!

  43. I made these cookies tonight and they are DELICIOUS! Just like the classic little Debbie’s but way better. I baked the cookies for 8 min exactly and they were perfectly chewy. I also added a bit of salt and cinnamon to the cream. Awesome recipe!!!!

  45. This is my favourite. So easy and very yummy.

  46. I used to have one of these every day with my school lunch. Oh the memories! This was the best part of my lunch :)

  47. This is way more delicious than anything you could buy pre-made at the store!  If you are going to treat yourself, make it homemade :)

  48. These cookies do look delicious. But what is with all the comments on roller derby? All I see in this post are the oatmeal cream pies! Clearly I’m missing something.

  49. 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?

  50. Dear god I love you. These are amazing.

  53. How awesome do those look!!!! These cookies are such a tease!

  54. Oh Isaac,

    Be nice! ;)

  55. The pies look delicious. You and your hubby's new rule is seriously disturbing.

  56. Hey :) I made these two weeks ago and my husband liked them but said he'd prefer them without the cream bit (He did not grow up with these) so I have now just made a batch of the cookies!! They do make a lovely oatmeal cookie! May try adding raisins next time!

  57. I am making these TODAY!!! :) I can't wait..part of Judah's birthday celebrations…we've been doing lots of tasty autumn treats and these will fit right in!
    Although I did have to buy the marshmallow fluff on-line from a special American imports store….so we can't make these too often :(

  58. Oatmeal Pies were my favorite too! I would eat one before every swim meet!

  59. Mmmm, these look delicious! I'm making these as soon as I can!!!
    I have a friend who is a Derby Doll :)

  60. That is a great sport! A pity we don't practice that here…

    Your pies look so irresistible!



  61. Roller Derby looks like so much fun!!! and your cookies looks so amazing. I want some, please.

  62. OMG those look great. These were also my favorite overly processed "dessert"!

  63. Lovely texture for these cute cookies. Nice to be here. Best wishes.

  64. I was a total oatmeal pie kinda girl and I never buy them anymore for fear of well getting more junk in my trunk, love this…oh I'm excited….glad you had a great time out, looks like a blast,

  65. Don't tell anyone, but I remember those roller derbies on tv *shhhhhhh* ;)

    These truly look amazing! I think we need that rule here too – waistline expanding treats MUST be made from scratch! There's time for the ardour to cool off and can anything really be better than home made?!?!? Puh-leaze!!

    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*

    Btw – Amanda, that's what I call a REAL woman's butt!

  66. I do remember roller derby , and of course oatmeal pies! My childhood favorite were twinkies though, but I certainly wouldn't refuse one of those lovely cookie pies!

  67. These are amazing! I'm not kidding, I really want one!

  68. Sommer,

    Sounds great ;)

  69. Dearest Demanda Rumble~

    Thanks for your comment! I had such a great time at the roller derby and am now a huge fan of the sport!

    I appreciate your sense of humor…thanks for not being mad about the booty-shot! If I ever decide to show mine in public, I'll send you a snap! ;)


  70. When I lived in Madison, there was a HUGE roller derby scene. Champaign (where I now live) JUST got a roller derby league. We finally managed to get tickets–this Saturday! Woohoo!!

  71. 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!

  72. My brother and I used to love watching Roller Derby with much amusing times. Sommer…those are great action pics!

    Those cookie pies sound like I better get my roller skates out and get them dusted off ;o)

    Ciao for now and flavourful wishes,

  73. Your roller derby photos are so fun! I can just imagine all the screaming and cheering. And your treats look fabulous. Yum.

  74. These were one of both my and my husband's favorites as kids :) He would love this recipe! I always ate them after heating them up in the microwave for a few seconds…yum!

  75. 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).

  76. 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

  77. 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!

  78. Moonpies for sure!

    I wanted to drop by and thank you for stopping by my blog :).

  79. wow what fun and you've been to India thats neat your hubby isnt Indian as well is he!!

  80. My friend is a roller derby girl! It's intense. I want to bite into your cookies.

  81. Congrats on the Top 9! Fun post – I'd love to see a roller derby match! Love the photos, esp. the one you couldn't resist taking :) And your oatmeal pies are spot-on!

  82. Great post, back in the day we watched roller derby on TV, probably snacking on ding dongs or something close to it! Hoorah for marshmallow fluff and your great recipe;)

  83. 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!



  84. 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!

  85. Wow! These pies look so good.

  86. 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!

  87. Wow this looks incredible! No wonder why it's in the top 9! Congrats!

  88. 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!

  89. Mmm, yummy pies. And congratulations to the giveaway winner!

  90. i am having some serious cravings for some of these right now. love it!

  91. Could you send me at least 42 of those pies??? I LOVE them !!!

  92. This is awesome!

  93. I adore this post and oatmeal cream pies. I agree that we should make it from scratch! I have my version of oatmeal cookies and the cream recipe from your blog will certainly be useful! The roller battle sounds so fun and everyone seemed to have a good time.

  94. Fun, fun, fun. Great project for me and my little one!

  95. delicious cream and pies

  96. I love homemade oatmeal cream pies! They taste great frozen as well, maybe even a little better:)

  97. The roller derby looks like good, wholesome fun! Just like oatmeal cream pies! I ate many of them when I was a kid. I bet these put them to shame!

  98. 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…

    Visiting from SITS!

  99. Mmm Mmm Mmm! Ridiculously good :-)

  100. Can't wait to try this recipe, and love, love, love your "rule."

  101. oh boy, these look sumptuous! Love your post and your recipes :)

  102. these look unreal! your roller derby experience looks hilarious!

  103. Hilarious, Sommer! I would never think to go to such an event – if only we lived closer so you could push me out of my box!!! ( : The oatmeal cream pies are genius – I always loved them but would never eat them from the package at this point – perfect!

  104. Blogging is fun but unfortunately not so good for the waistline. These pies would be great any time of the day.

  105. OMG I won?!? I never win anything! YAY! I will e-mail you! And these oatmeal cream pies look awesome, they were always one of my favorite Little Debbie snacks! =)

  106. Roller Derby has a fairly serious cult following here in Denver.

    Homemade oatmeal cream pies … next, can you give us a recipe for homemade RC cola? :^)

  107. Haha, looks like fun! The pies look great too :)

  108. Loved reading this! And the oatmeal pies look so scrumptious! I've never had one, and would love to try!

  109. These look delicious and looks as though you had a great time !

  110. Loved this post. I have a few friends who skate, back home, but I have yet to go. Great pictures. I still have a homemade yodel recipe from about 6 years ago that I have yet to make. I will defeat the roll cake!

  111. Your post was really funny. I enjoyed a lot the photo with the girl's bottom. Your cookies look fantastic. My favorite candy as a child was and still is chocolate.

  112. such a beautiful and delicious pie!

  113. the cookies look fabulous!! I'm sure they're addictive

  114. Beautifully baked oatmeal cream pies! You look so YOUNG!

  115. What fun! The cookies are fantastic too. I'm a big oatmeal fan.

  116. 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

  117. I've heard roller derbies are awesome. What a great snack!!

  118. These look so good…and I love your new house rule :) Fun pics…

  119. 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.

  120. 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.
