Homemade Oatmeal Creme Pies

Don’t you just love those Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies?  I do too, but last time I indulged and bought a box, they had shrunk!  I also hated the ingredient list. That’s why I love this version made with all natural ingredients.   I made these as a treat for my dear husband for Father’s Day, but I’ve snuck a couple myself and it goes without saying that the kiddos went crazy over them.   I found the recipe here, and I honestly don’t think I would change a thing. Usually after running through a recipe once, I try and start figuring out how to improve it. Not this one, though. The only tip I have is to find a consistent measuring device to drop the cookies out with so that they are each the same size. I used the 1 1/2 tablespoons from Williams and Sonoma and packed the dough in each time and leveled it out. It was kind of pain to the get all the cookies on the pan that way, but it was worth it. They all cooked at the exact same time and they all came out the exact same size.  Make some today and your family will love you for it. Or at least they’ll eat all the cookies and make yummy sounds.

I had the same thought about the Little Debbie ones shrinking last time I had one! I need to make these!

try a mini-ice cream scoop (with spring handle scoop-scraper thing)! i use one for all my cookies and they come out in perfect, beautiful, same-sized circles. plus the scoop dumps it on the cookie sheet for you so there’s no time wasted getting every last bit of dough out of a spoon.

As the husband who was targeted by these cookies I can attest that they are magnificent.
